Appreciate any members comments on Maxxis Tyres ? My daughters car (Ford Escape 4wd soft roader) needs new tyres and Maxxis are on special at the moment. The vehicle is only used on the bitumen so no rough stuff involved. I have never heard of Maxxis before but they seem to be a very large global company ?

Hi Mal, I just crossed the where i blew a tyre on my camper (not maxxis). I had them fitted to it in Norseman W.A., drove to tom price W.A. We went to Carnarvon for Christmas, about 300kms of dirt. they are still like new. I know its only the trailer . But i have noticed a lot of 4bys with them on.. good luck with them, Cheers

what model of Maxxis are you looking at and what sort of $. I looked at them the other week as an alternative.

starting to get alot of respect in the market and the prices are rising, not the 'bargain' they used to be. Still good buying though.

I had the big horns on my old Patrol and when the Pajero needs tyres will look at them again

Cheers Stefan

Looking at getting a couple of sets of maxxis trepadors at the moment.

Have heard good and bad reports ... have seen good and bad tyre wear ..... driver and terrain comparisons taken into account.

Mate has a set of what I regard as overly lumpy Maxxis Bighorns which he uses regularly on the bitumen and says they hang on like the proverbial to a blanket and hes happy with wear rates.

Maxxis has been around for a longtime .... in another guise.

Lots of "cheap" tyres out there if your only after round towners - have seen some unpronouncable korean brands for as little as 130.00 for 235/75x15s. Came across some cheap michelins a while back ( only AT ) Came off new vehicles being fitted with different wheels/tyres. Lots of options if you hunt about.

Hi Old Mal,
I have run Maxxis 245.70.16 on "her" Disco td5 for over 30000km and they show little obvious wear as yet.
Barring stakes etc I expect to get well over 70000km out of them
This vehicle does mainly blacktop work with a little bit of beach work added in.
It's "her" car but I'm very impressed with all aspects of the tyre except one......they are a bit noisy on the blacktop, not annoying but vaguely noticeable at around 110kph.

When I eventually wear out the old rag 750.16s on"my" old Landy series 3, I will use Maxxis on that as well.

G'day Old Mal
I've had Maxxis on my cruiser for the past 3 years without any punctures , even though they have been deflated down as low as 3psi for very soft beach work and then reinflated to 45psi for the blacktop with no apparent illeffect . They've done 65000kms and I reckon they'll do at least another 60000kms before they need to be replaced.There is a slight road noise but once the windows are wound up the problem is solved .

Maxxis are a HUGE tyre company and very popular in the states. They are extremely well respected tyres in Dirtbike / Motorcross circles, so know how to make offroad tyres.

I will be considering them when I next need tyres.

I have them on my dirtbikes, and they are great.
