You'll like the Maxxis tires. Mine are holding up very well.

Hehe, They goofed. I wanted 8 ply(E). I ended up with 10 Ply(f). He gave me them for the same price. His goof. Now i have a Lightweight or ultra light trailer, 6100 pds with 8100 max. With 7000 pd axles and f rated tires for over 10 thousand pds...I think i will try for the, O say 7000 pd range. And i am on more back roads than highways or interstates. I should be ok for this trip. Two weeks! Have one other thing to do yet and thats the timing chain and gear set. I have driven this thing on and off for ten years before i bought it. Seems that it is getting sluggish. Did tuneup and still sluggish. He can't remember ever putting one in it so i will be smart and replace it.I have been using some more oil than i used to . Am thinking it could be so sloppy that it has ground the metal thin on the timing chain cover. Have had that happen before. That done and a good gof and trans oil change and it should be good to go as well. Anyway, Thanks for the help on the tires. I feel better than with some of the other tires out there. The ones on this unit a friend wanted them for his wagon he uses to feed the cattle. Put them on and when he headed to the gate, Two of them shed the tread!!! Glad i took the tires off and took it to the tire man!! I wouldn't have made it at all!! Thanks again, Dan

The ten ply tires are E rated. I have had the maxxis for three years now. They seem to be doing the job unlike the Carlisles which didn't make it through the first year. My Maxxis tires have about 16,000 miles on them so far ( just finished a 8,000 mile trip).


I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
