Unhappy Maxxis 8008 Separation on spare tire

2012 White Hawk
2012 Maxxis ST8008
ST 205/75 R15 Load Range D

We are getting ready for another RV trip here in Florida, as this is the opening season for us. Was airing up the tires and the four on the ground look great for over 12,000 miles on them from Florida to Maine and all around GA and FL. Checked the spare that has been covered by a tire cover and found it separated at the upper section. I am going to try and add a picture. Due to the location on the top of the tire I am guessing that even with the cover on the UV rays and heat got to the tire. So to all check those spares and also thinking of moving the location of the spare from the back bumper to the bed of the covered P/U. Anyone else ever have this problem?

Hmmm, I see no evidence of any other UV/Weathering on that tire. When was the last time you looked at it or did this tire come with the trailer? IMO that is a defective tire and should be replaced for free. A tire that has never seen service and been under cover the whole time should not degrade like that.

glad you caught it before you needed it!

If that is a 4 year old tire, it is out of warranty. I replaced my HTT tires this spring including the never used spare.

Here is the Maxxis warranty. Looks to me like the tire should be covered and since it has 100% tread should be replaced for free.

What Is Warranted and For How Long

Subject to the limitations contained in this Limited Warranty, your new Maxxis tires are
warranted under this Limited Warranty against failures due to defective materials and
workmanship for a period of six years from the date of manufacture.

(A) Eligibility: A tire is eligible for warranty coverage under this Limited Warranty only
if the tire is presented by the original owner and consumer within six years from
the tire’s manufacture date and the tire has a minimum of 2/32” of tread depth
remaining, and all procedures in this Limited Warranty are followed.

(B) Free Replacement: Subject to the limitations contained in this Limited Warranty, if
a Maxxis tire fails due to defective materials or workmanship during the first 25%
of treadwear on the Radial ST or twelve months from the date of original purchase,
whichever comes first, the tire will be replaced with a new comparable Maxxis
tire without charge. Notwithstanding the foregoing, out-of-round tires must be
presented for free replacement within the first 2/32” of tread depth.

(C) Treadwear Prorated Discount: A defective tire that does not qualify for free
replacement under (B) above, but that is otherwise eligible for warranty coverage
under this Limited Warranty, will entitle you to a discount on the purchase of a
comparable new Maxxis tire. The amount of the discount will be calculated based
upon the percentage of tread that remains on the defective tire. For example, if
60% of the original tread remains on the defective tire, you will be entitled to a 60%
discount off of the retail price of a comparable new Maxxis tire. You are responsible
for all labor costs for mounting and balancing and for all applicable taxes.

That looks like a reaction of some type. Perhaps the cover was out gassing and it was trapped on top of the tire?

I think that`s a first on this forum. The spare tire blew (or separated or whatever) on its hanger!

That looks like a big hole to me, i.e. a blowout. Which means all the air escaped essentially at once. Which means the cover would have been damaged or blown off. Which means that somebody replaced or just put back in place the cover.

Hmmm...

Or: I wonder if someone needed a new Maxxis tire, and left you their blown out one?

Of course, most of my opinions are deplorable, so I'm probably wrong.

Were the missing pieces still inside the cover? I wonder if it came from the factory like that.

That looks crazy! And on a tire that's just been sitting?

If I were Maxxis, I would want to examine the tire to know exactly what happened. Because that's bizarre.
