Maxxis Tires

Post by Reloaderguy » Mon Mar 19, 2018 7:19 pm

Anyone here have experience with Maxxis tires on the street? I think I've seen one person in the FB PW group that had a set but he is Canadian. Any of you guys run a set of Trepadors radials or Razr MT's or know someone who has? Specifically the big hoops.

Why would you run anything else?

Maybe this solves the 40+” tire issue. Run 50’s and you won’t need fenders.

$800 per tire and 55mph speed rating doesn't exactly peak my interest.

Oh I’m sorry I didn’t realize we were trying to avoid compromises

Theres a guy on here running the Razr’s on his ‘17, but only a 35” so probably would not be much of a review comparison for you.

Razr' S. They appear well liked. I'm also looking at MTZ P3.

Those Razrs look sweet, only $400 on Amazon and a 40,000 mile treadwear warranty (at least on the smaller sizes?)

They're a lot less expensive than Toyos.

Would be nice to hear reports on how well they do or don't balance. 40k tread wear warranty on a 37" MT is interesting. E-rated tire as well although my d-rated toyos are as stiff as I ever need them to be.

Centramatic balancer would probably handle any balancing issues. D and E load range doesn’t mean anything realistically, ignore the load range. Load Index (the actual number in pounds that the tire can carry) is what matters. Sidewall stiffness and a tires ‘survivability’ are dependent on the tire itself and are not quantifiable measurements but you can get an estimate based on the tires weight, kind of. The D and E range Toyo MT in a 37” are the same carcass, the E range is physically larger and is designed to hold 65psi max vs 50psi. In comparison the Toyo RT and Nitto Ridge Grappler both lose load capacity when you go from a 12.5 to a 13.5 wide, even though max pressure is the same.

I've been running 35in razr mt for about 8 months now, no balance issues, run smooth for an mt, So far have been durable in rocks, great traction and tough sidewalls. I have some chunks missing from contact with a sharp fender. Wearing well.

Thanks for the input. The Razr looks pretty good and the price is right. Maxxis is one of the few companies that makes a load index 128 40x13.5R20 and it's affordable.
