MilCop, how long have you been using the Maxxis tires? Still happy with them?

Just received this from Maxxis;
David,
The Maxxis M8008 ST Radial is "Q" speed rated. However, according to the Tire and Rim Association, the U.S. tire industry specification authority, inflation pressures and load specifications in general for any ST Radial trailer tires, without a service description, regardless of the manufacturer, are designed and rated at 65 MPH. If the speed is higher than 65 MPH, the pressure and load need to be adjusted according to the following guidelines:
From 66 to 75 MPH – the tire inflation pressure needs to increase 10 PSI (not to exceed the maximum PSI the tire is rated for) but requires no load adjustment.
From 76 to 85 MPH – the tire inflation pressure needs to increase 10 PSI (not to exceed the maximum PSI the tire is rated for) and load should be reduced by 10%.
We hope this information is helpful. Thanks for your inquiry and interest in Maxxis Tires.
Best Regards,
Your Maxxis Support Team

we purchased them in early 2015 had them installed and balanced. Took 3 long road trips to Maine, NH (Nascar race at Louden) and Prince Edward Island fully loaded. they handle nice, no sway.

i'm also using the Truck Systems Technologies 507 monitoring system on them. they didn't build up as much temp and pressure as the other tires we had on it.

the Goodyear dealer said there were certain brands to stay clear of and certain brands to find and buy. these was highly rated.

Any recommendations on valve stems ?

I have a TST507 TPMS setup, which is not happy with 2 of the valve-stems currently fitted (which are cheap rubber junk), since I get intermittent low readings because they're not properly pushing in the valve stem core pin (and I've replaced the core), so I'm thinking of fitting some metal valve stems, but not sure which are any good.
I had the same problem with a Tire Minder TPMS system. Just didn't push in the valve stem core pin. Tried to modify with a insert about the size of a BB, but just couldn't get it to work consistently. Also one of the units leaked thru the unit itself. Chalked it up to money wasted.

Thanks to MilCop4523, I also just ordered a set of Maxxis M8008s from Discount Tire Direct. Had them shipped to a KinekPoint shipping point on the border. Only took 2 days to deliver them. Now I have to get there to pick them up. I also asked about the date on the tires when ordering and they said they had only come in from the factory 7 days prior so I presume they'll be fairly new.

Nash, I understood that to buy them in Canada they'd have to be shipped from the only Maxxis distributor in Canada which is in B.C.? That would cost $200. I just Googled it again and found a new website tdotperformance.ca. Is that where you ordered yours from? I paid US$104 = CAD$135 per tire (free shipping within the US) for 205/75R15 LR-D. The website I referred to would charge CAD$185 per tire.

Anyway, thanks to everyone that provided input and guidance. I appreciate it. You guys all helped me make the decision.
So how much money did you save going this route?

I've had Maxxis on my trailer for over a year (3 of them) and over 2 years (one of them). No issues... about 3K miles on 1 tire and about 2K miles on the other. Best of luck with them. I don't think you can go wrong with Discount Tire, either. I've not used the Direct division, but their retail stores are top notch.

"Save" as compared to what? The tires were $157 each plus valve stems at $3 each, plus $20 mount and balance. so, $180 per tire to be ready to go,....so $720 for the set. There were cheaper tires I could have bought, but I already had a set of the cheapest tire out there...Constancy 188's.
And, fwiw, I stuck an ad on Facebook last evening, sold the Constancys this morning for $200.
So,...I'm out $520 for a new set of Maxxis tires plus a little gasoline for my Toyota Tundra farm truck running back and forth to the tire shop,...plus my time, but I'm retired, so,...I needed something to do anyway..lol

So, what did we want to compare to?

Is this the online site related to discount tire stores? I had to go with SOB brand tire because our local Discount Tire brick and mortar store can't handle anything other than a routine tire. Had a bad experience when trying to get boat trailer tires there. It would be nice to have a good online resource.
