Maxxis Tire Purchase

I live in eastern Canada and want to purchase 4 new ST tires. I have sent an email to Maxxis Canada requesting information on a supply dealer. I cannot get a reply. Are they available in Canada? They seem to be the best rated ST tire on the market and I would like to get my tires now, so I will be ready for spring. They have a Canadian website, but only have American dealers listed. Has anybody purchased on this side of the border and if so where. I considered purchasing in Maine, but there is no listing for there as well.

I realize they are in Brampton, but they do not seem to reply to their Emails. Who are their Canadian dealers?

Lots of folks in the same boat. Some upgrade to the LT tire and some go with another foreign made ST tire. And some find a multi position tire which make another good upgrade.
If we knew your OEM tire size and load range we may have some more options.

I don't know. Have you tried to call or fax them?
Maxxis International - Canada
400 Chrysler Drive, Unit C
Brampton, Ontario, L6S 5Z5 Canada
Tel: (905) 789-0882
Fax: (905) 789-1507

The Maxxis e-store ships to the U.S. addresses only. Free UPS shipping, but you must have an address in the USA where they can ship to. Can you find someone or some business in Maine where you could have your tires delivered?

Discount Tire is a Maxxis dealer in most states of the USA, but they don't have any stores in New England, so that won't do you any good.

JIMNLIN is right. If you have 16" trailer tires, then Michelin XPS is the best "all position" commercial truck tire in the world for use in trailer service. Expensive, but you're worth it. But if your trailer tires are 14" or 15" then I would go way out of my way to buy Maxxis trailer tires.

Canada Tire Store used to sell Sailun tires.
Sailun S637 Tires are an upgrade. They are an all-position load range G, 235/85R16" tire. They are designed for HD trailers, steer tires, ie: an all -position tire speed rated for 75 MPH.
The price difference is huge between Michelin and Sailun tires.

Alkibase, perhaps you would save a lot of money buying Sailun tires from $177.99 - Sailun 235/85R16 8244393 tires at SimpleTire.com

There's 2 year old post on RV.net that said they (ST) aren't available in Canada. I couldn't find a current source on the internet when I just looked.

Even if you could buy them in Canada, if you are close enough to the border or are planning a trip there, get them in the US. Tires are as much as 1/2 the cost of what you'll pay in Canada. We buy as much as we can of anything online and get it shipped to a mailbox just across the border.

You can get 205/75/15 M8008 at www.discounttire.com for $116 each with free shipping. If you got these couriered to Canada, you'd be looking at another 50% or more on top of that. If you shop all over the internet, you could probably get a better price than this.
