Ask to see them, compare the thickness on the sidewalls between the Maxxis and whatever else they are trying to sell you. Remember to check manufacture dates, should be not more than a year old as they will age out in 4 to 5 years regardless of usage.

If you're some place for a few days and can accept UPS packages- you can always find Maxxis at DiscountTireDirect.com. Free shipping and competitive prices.

Any updates yet Balckhat? Hate to hear about this but I'm glad everyones OK. There's no worse feeling than to have a blowout early in a trip just to worry about every other tire.

Yes, the tire monitor worked great. It told me when the blow outs happened!!! All pressures and temps were within parameters when they blew. I spent several days of our vacation hunting down "E" load tires to replace the "D" that came stock on the unit. They are not plentiful in the FL Keys. New tires carry 80psi rather than the 65psi of the "D"s. Glad I always carry two spares or we would have spent Christmas night on the roadside in South Miami.
