Maxxis or Marathon - Had little choice
I'm putting new axles on my 2006 Rockwood 8280SS and am upgrading to 16" wheels so I needed 235/80R16's. Researched to death, and finally decided on Marathon's due to price over the Maxxis. Ordered through local Discount Tire (San Antonio, TX) and was informed that no Marathons in that size were available, either from their warehouses, or through the GY distributor, "On Backorder". I question as to what's going on w/GY??
So this afternoon I'm going to go get 5 Maxxis mounted on my new wheels. I'm one of the many that had problems with Carlisle around 2004 and because of that I refuse to use them. In fact when I bought the Rockwood, the first week I had it I sold the Carlisle and bought new wheels and tires to up the safety margin.
Best of luck on your decision.
