I talked to them when I ordered mine.... they said they would/could order them...just not very enthusiastic about it. I was terrified of them being 18-24 months old(as stated on other threads).... I ordered the "weeks" old Marathons

Maxxis 8008

I did a lot of research on tires for my former Heartland Trailrunner. I replaced the cheap Chinese tires with the Maxxis 8008 ST Radial BS Trailer tires in an E load range. ST225/75R-15E 117B were ordered from Discount Tire Direct at a delivered cost of $628. Had them mounted and balanced for about $60. I narrowed my decision down to the Maxxis and GreenBall Tires and since DTD did not carry the GreenBall tires I opted to go with the Maxxis. I read lots of reviews on the GreenBall tires and they were all positive. Just purchased a 2015 Cherokee 274DBH and traded in the Trailrunner; wish I could have moved the tires over. I'll run the stock ones for now but I'm looking to go back to the Maxxis 8008s in a load range higher than what I have now. The Maxxis ran great at 70 MPH and when I stopped for fuel or rest room, were just mildly warm.
Hope this helps.

Also....I saw the deal I couldn't pass up. GY 225/75/15 D-rated. $312 no freight or tax. Had to do it
