Check-out this list of recalls that someone has compiled and published. The seriousness of improperly identified tires depicted on a vehicle’s certification label cannot be over emphasized.

Please file a complaint. Here is the link.

Airdale, the link you have provided is for US residents, Canadian residents must use the Dept of Transport site.

Defect Investigations and Recalls - Transport Canada

As I previously posted, I sent in all the required information, got a reply back from Transport Canada saying it will be actioned, and have yet to hear anything from anyone. (2 years this September) . I have upgraded the tires to LR Es running at 65 psi so the tire information on my sidewall is void anyway, and I don't plan to sell or trade in the near future. It soon won't be an issue, since in another year the sun will have faded the sticker to the point nobody can read it anyway.

I know Wildcat does offer the Maxxis as an option. The current tire I have on my Wildcat is a Westlake 16" E rated tire that I run at 80psi. They handled pretty good the other day with 40 mph cross winds.

I think tires and safety is important.....along with all this tire info why don t we all just change our driving habits and slow down so we can stop and not damage equipment on our vehicles.....along with educating ourselves about what our equipment requires for long, safe operation....good luck to all....this forum is always a good place to start the education process, but most of it is opinion and unsupported facts, so do your research to support what is said here.....I was advised when the maxxis d tire were installed in place of my c, to keep them about 60 as pressure will increase when in use.....since have a tpms will keep them at a psi that will allow them to increase to 65 psi when traveling....however if sitting for a couple of weeks will bump that pressure up - cover the tires -
