Hi I am Sumanth and a new owner of an Outback 2013 with about 10k miles on it. I totally love my car but recently encountered a ton of problems with the tires giving up on me in the cold cold North Dakotan off roads. I work mostly in the oil field and do a lot of commuting back and forth from Colorado. I had my first flat which happened on a highway I suppose with a big nail sitting comfortably inside the flat tire. The second time I had a flat tire was completely unexpected and the tire had a gaping hole at the side and had to be replaced. There was no evidence of a foreign object in it. My fellow colleagues in the oil field who have the privilege of driving big pickups with 'x' ply tires just cannot what I am going through as they have never encountered a situation like mine before and keep suggesting me to go for thicker tires.
So my question here is since the factory tires are not helping what would anyone suggest me going for the Outback 2013??
