I noticed an ad in the latest issue of "Trailer Life" for Maxxis ST tires. I wasn't aware that Maxxis made ST Tires. Does anyone have experience with these tires, particularly the 235/80R16 10ply size. Where are these tires made? Best price you have found for these?

Edited for change of aspect ratio from 235/85 to 235/80

If it moves but shouldn't, use Duct Tape. If it doesn't move but should, use WD40.

Maxxis makes a very good ST tire..in my opinion/research...they make the best ST tire available..
They are manufactured in Thailand not China. I have "E" rated on mine @ 80 psi.
Shop and order on line and have them delivered. Then any tire shop will balance and mount them for you...or get Discount Tire to order them.
Specify that they be "fresh" with less than 6 months manufacturer date code.

Took the Mission 15's off my 5th wheel and put Maxxis 235/85R16's in their place...actually made the ride better (not sure why)...but the tire and wheel combination was at least twice the weight of the original...I'm satisfied I made a good move by changing...bought them at Buffalo Tire.

Just dumped my 15" D range china bombs and replaced with 15" E range Maxxis. The two aren't even in the same league with one another. My ride improved as well, not to mention I also had them balanced.

Have had them on now for 3 years and a little over 12,000 miles. I believe they are made in Taiwan. They are the 235/80 16 10 ply and will replace with them when these wear out.

I will not use any other brand of ST tire than Maxxis.

We have new , fresh (2 months old ) 225-75r Maxxis on our fiver. This is our second set of Maxxis. The first set lasted six years and made some very long and safe trips around our fine nation. One of the old Maxxis is mounted on our spare tire- still better than a chinese bomb. Our daughter and SIL have new E rated Maxxis on their new Keystone trailer.They also have one of our old Maxxis as a spare. Maxxis - the best and safest ST tire made,IMHO.
