Perhaps it’s time for high end bikes to come with no tires as with pedals now. Tires are very terrain, conditions and individual specific, like pedals. At the mid to lower end as someone stated already, many of those riders don’t know enough yet to determine what a good tire is for them. My new bike came with good tires, Bontrager SE4 2.6. I just don’t happen to like a round profile tire as much as a narrower flat top style so off the went in favour of Michelin Wild Enduro 2.4’s.  Related to this issue is aluminum framed bikes coming with low end components. I would have gotten the aluminum version of my Remedy but those came with shitty brakes and wheels as well as lower end drivetrain and suspension bits. If you start doing custom builds on a bare frame the cost rapidly exceeds the complete carbon framed bike.
