Discount tire direct - Maxxis 8008's

Well, after I exhausted my search for tires, and bugged all you guys to death with endless questions, I called the guys at Discount Tire Direct this past Monday, 3/28 at around 2 in the afternoon. I asked the guy about how fresh was their inventory, because I didn't want to receive tires that were already 2 years old. He promised to put a message with the order instructing them to verify the dates were less than a year old. I doubt anyone checked anything, but that was the first thing I checked when they arrived and the tires were less than 6 months old. I can live with that. But the interesting thing is that I ordered Monday afternoon, and the dang tires were sitting on my doorstep Tuesday afternoon. WOW! Less than 24 hours from ordering to delivery.
I've never experienced service that fast before. The tires were pulled and put on a UPS truck in Dallas Monday afternoon. I was shocked to say the least.

Anyway, this morning, I pulled the wheels 2 at a time, and had them mounted and balanced at our friendly neighborhood tire shop. They are on the trailer as I type this. Haven't pulled the trailer at highway speeds yet, but will be within a couple of weeks.

Anyway, thanks to everyone that provided input and guidance. I appreciate it. You guys all helped me make the decision.

Awesome! I can vouch for their service when things don't go right- 1 of my 4 Maxxis tires didn't make it. I called DTD and they initiated an investigation with UPS. After 24 hours, they called me back and said that regardless of what UPS found- they were shipping me a replacement tire.

Good to hear positive feedback.

Unfortunately it looks like they only sell the E-rated Maxxis tires, and since my 5er currently has C-rated tires I'm guessing that my rims will only support D-rated at max (which tbh is plenty for my rig), so I think I'll have to order them from Amazon and get them installed by the local tire shop.

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 searched for bolt on valve stems too, and found them at NAPA for like $3 each, and they are rated for 200 psi. I actually picked them up the same day I ordered the Maxxis 8008's. Had them installed with the new tires. When I got home Tuesday afternoon, the tires were sitting there with a box from TechnoRV with the TST-507. I will probably install it tomorrow.

So are these the newer tires with the speed ratings or are they the ones that tire rack are discounting to deplete their inventory of the ones without the new requirement of speed rating the tires.

CWS, I assume these are the slightly older stock they needed to move out of inventory since their dare of manufacture is right at the dates you mentioned. I pretty much have to be okay with these regardless of the speed rating, as they are mounted, balanced and paid for.

Good to hear David. I literally had the same experience. Ordered maxxis m8008 on Monday afternoon (March 28). I ordered them direct from maxxis Canada. They arrived Tuesday afternoon. They had a manufacturer date of mid November 2015. They look great. Hoping to have them on TT this weekend.

Discount Tire

I've ordered many items from them and got a bad rim once that they went the extra mile to make right. I've found their prices good but their service has always been great.

I replaced my SOB trailer tires with the same ones you did from the same retailer. Super fast service as well.
0 complaints with these folks on any transaction i've had with them.
