I also had maxxis tires, however mine were used on a cargo trailer pulled behind a TC. I got about 7 years out of mine. They also had tread coming apart near the edge and minor cracking between the tread no cracking on the sidewalls. With ST trailer tires I think if you can get 6 to 7 years you did well. Guess I got lucky as I also ordered online and mine were about 6 months old.

The warranty on Maxxis RV trailer tires starts on the date of manufacturer displayed on the tire sidewall.

We got the Maxxis tires from Simpletire. I just replaced them with a set of 5 Carlisle radial trail hd's from Walmart online. $44 a tire. All have the same date code 48th week of 2018.
I hope to have better luck with these. They are also rated for 81 MPH.
They'll never see it on my trailer but it's nice to know I'm not running so close to their limit.

I also had a MAXXIS tread about to come off. Switched to Endurance.

+1 to go with a better speed rating.

I had a set of Maxxis ST 8008 tires on a small utility trailer. As such the tires were well under their weight rating.

I had a tire fail while on a trip. Replaced both tires and the other tire looked good and was through;y inspected by the tire shop. I then used it for a spare and the tire was stored inside the trailer.

About one year later when getting trailer ready for a trip this is what I found when checking tire pressures.

Maxxis tires are "china bombs" just like almost every other ST tire. This is predictable.

I second or third the GY Endurance. Made in USA! Made anywhere but China would be fine.

Why are those tires sitting in a warehouse for 3 years, aren't they selling? Don't they FIFO their stock?
Five years/15k miles and falling apart is not a sign of quality. For comparison I bought a new explorer in
2002 and put the original spare (michelin crossterrain ) on the car in 2009. Replacing the tire this month
after 10 yrs on the road and 17yrs since manufacture with about 60k miles.


Apparently, they use the FISH inventory system- first in, still here.

I bought a set of Carlisle radial hd's last summer through Amazon, and they were only about 6-7 months old. I would definitely have contacted the vendor and demanded a fresher set of tires or a steep discount.
Seems like with the new and improved offerings from Carlisle and Goodyear, the Maxis are loosing the favor they once had.

It’s your lucky day. Go buy a lottery ticket too!
And when you get home from the convienence store, order some new tires.
Fwiw, I’ve bought several sets from etrailer and all were fresh donuts.
