Maxxis Tires

I'm just curious. I have read all the horror stories about ST tires and have had some problems of my own with them. I ordered the upgrade to Maxxis tires on my 2016 323 LKTS fifth wheel and have about 1500 miles on them and so far have had no noticeable problems with them.

I'm wondering how the rest of you who have the Maxxis tires like them and whether or not you are having any problems with them.

I've run Maxxis ST tires and think they are a good choice. The only problem I found is that (at least where I've been) you have to order them rather than dealers having them in stock. I destroyed one Maxxis tire on a road defect (metal drawbridge had a piece of the grate sticking out) and I couldn't get a matching Maxxis tire in a timely manner.

There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.

I too ordered the Maxxis upgrade on our 2016 323LKTS. We have been out 6 times with it this year for about 1800 miles and the tires look good. I have a TPMS and as all tires when they get warmed up going down the road the pressure rises to ~90 PSI. I have them set to 80 PSI cold. This was one option that was worth the $$.

We had them ordered and installed a few months ago, as well as the spare, so far so good.

I have almost 5,000 miles on mine and no complaints, I ordered them from realdealtires.com and free freight. They shipped the same day and I had Costco balance and install them for $14-15 each. No Fed or State Tax when you buy from them. I also ordered my car tires through them for a very good price.

I ordered my Maxxis from Discount Tire Direct's EBay store a few months ago on one of their "buy 3, get one free" deals. Had them mounted by a local family owned tire shop right down the road from my storage lot.

I have to say I've been happy with them so far. The instill a bit more confidence than the Towmax garbage they replaced. I would definitely recommend them based on my experience and the experiences of others I encountered doing my research.

Got rid of the Blowmax tires and put on Maxxis a few months ago. Went up to next load rating. Have not noticed any issues in 2 trips so far. Got em from Discount Tires on line with local shop installing them. BTW, I also think the tire pressure monitoring system is super, and it gives me piece of mind.

We also have the 323LKTS and went with the Maxxis upgrade. Have over 3000 miles on them and no issues whatsoever - I had to replace one with only a couple of hundred miles on it, but that was because I picked up a screw in the tire shoulder (not repairable), not because of a manufacturers defect.

That said, I had over 10k miles on a set of TowMax with no issues whatsoever. From what I've heard and read though, I think I was one of the lucky few.

I have never seen a negative word or post on Maxxis tires.

If you're near Billings Montana there is a tire shop that stocks them. Just an FYI.
I'll probably eventually replace these with another set.
