Maxiss M8008 Tires

Can anyone give me the good and bad on these tires. They are the Maxiss 10 Ply Load Range E (2830 load at 80 psi). I have a 5th Wheel dry weight about 9,000. I am limited to what tires I can buy due to my size ST225/75R15. Was looking at the Goodyear but the only Trailer tire in my size was the Marathon which I don't want. Michelin does not make a Trailer tire. Both Goodyear and Michelin do not recommend that you put on any other tire except a Special
Trailer Tire. Which I will take their recommendation.

Dan,
I just put those exact tires on our new 5th wheel. (see another thread on this forum, "unexplained new tire leak" ) With that said, after much research, I still think they are the best choice for 15" wheels. These Maxxis tires are speed rated much higher than the standard 65mph, NOT to say you should tow faster.. Just saying I like a little insurance. I will update after this weekend trip camping again. Monkey.

Incorrect. They are speed rated at 65 mph. I have a copy of the PDF that shows it. Still very good tires.

They are very good tires had them on our last trailer for two seasons before we traded. HOWEVER with a dry weight of 10,000lbs I would really be looking to put a set of 16"wheels and tires under the trailer IF it were mine. I plan on doing the same to our new one in a few years if I can cough up the money

I would up to 16 in Wheels and use LRF's Tires and be done with it --10,000 lbs on LRE's aren't going to last and if they do --Your Lucky !

Thank you for your request. Our M8008 ST radials have a "Q" speed rating. However, according to the Tire & Rim Association, the U.S. tire industry authority, inflation pressures and load specifications in general for any ST Radial trailer tires, regardless of the tire manufacturer, are designed and rated at 65 MPH. However, if the speed is higher than 65 MPH, the pressure and load need to be adjusted according to the following guidelines:
>From 66 to 75 MPH - the tire inflation pressure needs to increase 10 PSI (not to exceed the maximum PSI the tire is rated for) and load should be reduced by 10%
>From 76 to 85 MPH - the tire inflation pressure needs to increase 10 PSI (not to exceed the maximum PSI tire is rated for) and load should be reduced by 10%

Please refer to our web site for detailed dimensions and specifications on our M8008.
We hope this information is helpful. Thanks for your email and interest in Maxxis Tires.

This is Not to say towing faster is better.. I was just interested so I went to the maker of the tires. Monkey

On a smaller scale (14" Maxxis) tires I just bought. I too had thought the Goodyear Marathons were the tire of choice, until I started seeing all the bad reviews.

Planning to go to Alaska this summer, so I wanted "good" tires. From the thread I started a month ago, I went with the 14" Maxxis RV trailer tires. Only can judge them from the one trip back from the tire store (15 miles) and first thoughts are they seem to not bounce as much and take the chuck-holes better. The old tire were only 4 years old and 70% thread left, but starting to show signs of side wall checking. Didn't want that for AK.

I have a 120 mile trip this weekend, over roads I'm very used to, so I'll get a better feel on how they ride and handle.

Yes i saw that page that said Q rated. I wish it was true, but unfortunately they are rated at 65 like all st tires. Now I did see another post that indicated that over inflating by 10% would increase the speed to about 70 but I'm not buying it.��. Ooops . I see you posted that info. I think I'll just keep it around 65.

All my Maxxis M8008's have been well over 65mph many a mile.

I have the E-rated 15" Maxxis on my fiver for about 20,000 miles and this will be their fourth season. It has a GVWR of 10K. They still look good, but I will replace them with the same next year.
BTW, Jayco offers the Maxxis tires as an upgrade option on their fifth wheels.

I'm done here after saying you might read that again... Where do you get "over inflating"? They say Specifically Not To Exceed The Maxium PSI the Tire Is Rated For.... 65 mph is fine. Sometimes 55 mph is all I'll drive if thats where I feel safe. If I feel safe driving 75 mph, I want a tire to hold up,,, not rip apart my rv when it blows... Thats why I bought Maxxis.
