you could also order through ''discount tires' and have them shipped to your door and then have them mounted locally.

I got mine online from Tire Rack. They can ship to your installer if you like.

I'd get Maxxis if it was mine. Object is to NOT need to use spare. In over 200,000 towing miles we've never used a spare, though we carry one for luck.

As far as Gooyears go, if they are made in China, I personally would pass on them. I personally believe our luck with tires is due to never using any from China.

Beware of the Tire Rack. They sometimes sell VERY old tires. Ask them to guarantee age, bet they will not. Not even newer than three years! Really just gambling with them.

Besides, unlike the other junk tires out there you can get a nail or something in a Maxxiss and THEN FIX IT!!!
I had to do this last year. The tire didn't explode, separate a tread or other wise commit suicide all over the highway in some dramatic way. It just wen't flat and I had it fixed. So nice to have a modern tire.


How long was it flat? I just had a tire self destruct because it went flat and I didn't know it...once it goes flat it overheats quickly then destruction follows shortly. I think a TPMS is more important than the brand here....had I been able to pull over as soon as that tire started losing air, I could have plugged it. Maybe the Maxxis lasts longer until it comes apart...but even if it did, I'm not sure I would plug a tire that had run flat for an undetermined distance.

I just ordered my Maxxis from discount tire. I am replacing some Goodyear marathon's from 2004. Those one were made in New Zealand. I just bought the trailer so I don't know how they were used for reliability.

How does that work out for you ....seems like the "installer" might be a little miffed for not buying the tires from him

Not to mention, most dealers will easily match Tirerack.com prices, with the shipping included. I've tried hard to use Tirerack, and it hasn't been to my advantage every time.

Discount had mine in the next day. If everybody like the maxxis and they aren't in stock maybe they don't have any problems.

I recently replaced all my tires with Maxxis, including the spare. Ordered with local Discount Tire shop and tires were in next day as promised. Took them 40 minutes to install all 5 and I was on my way.
