Default Tires

I'm loving my new F150 SCREW 4x4.
One thing I'm not sure about is that I ordered it with A/T tires and Ford put Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude H/T on it.
Any one else have this happen and what are your thoughts on this tire?
Certainly not as aggressive a tread as i expected based on other A/T tires I have seen.

The H/T typically refers to high torque or highway tire, NOT an all terrain in my opinion...

Yeah if you ordered it with A/T and they sent it with H/T then you did not get what you requested.

So I called Ford customer service the other day and told the nice lady about my issue.
She gave me a case file number and told me to get the sales manager at the dealership to call " to reach out " on my behalf.
She kind of intimated that they would be receptive to some sort of arrangement, which I assume meant that they would give me what I actually ordered.
My main concern is that they will want to give me something that is still only 2 ply AT tires.
Guess I'll wait and see.

You may want to read this thread: https://www.f150forum.com/f118/ford-...3/#post4248466

In that thread:

Goodyear considers the wrangler fortitude that comes on these trucks an all terrain tire.

It says so right on the goodyear website.

https://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires...r-fortitude-ht

Some of us, me included would like a more aggressive tire. But it's not misrepresented.

If a tire manufacturer calls them All Terrain, then they are. Even if you or I wouldn't call them that.

Yes, I saw on their web site that Goodyear calls them AS/AT tires. I have a customer at work that had the same tires shipped on his new GMC Sierra when he ordered truck w/AT tires.
I didn't order AS/AT tires, I ordered AT tires in the hope that they would match them to the trailer tow pkg, trailer tow mirrors and trailer brake controller that I ordered
to be able to tow the two dual axle trailers and cargo that I have.
I would have thought they might have caught on to this.
Don't get me wrong, other than the tires I love the truck.
