Budget (sub $200) Tyres


I'm about to hit 100,000km in the xtrail, and looking at my second set of tyres. I squeezed the original toyos out to 60,000, and the replacement Dunlop 501's seem to be struggling toward 40,000.

The local Bob Jane T-Mart has Maxxis tyres for $103. (Thats about half price of all the other xtrail tyres available 501's are now $249!)

Are Maxxis any good ?

Re: Maxxis tyres?


There is a reason they are $103. You get what you pay for... Personally, I wouldn't put them on my car, especially the xtrail. They do make a good larger mud tyre, but it is a softer construction and not very long lasting. They have also been known to delaminate. Most of these tyre places offer finance. For peace of mind, stick to a proven product.

I'm getting one to use as a spare today. Even the bob-jane guy wasnt pushing them which probably says something.

But $103 is what most other "cars" pay for tyres. Even other soft roaders like the Escape get tyres for under $150.

Xtrail tyres are a rip.

Geoff,

It depends on what size tyre the Escape uses.

As you know, the price varies greatly between one size and the other.

Hi Geoff,
         I have spent considerable time researching tyre replacements for the xtrail. I also consulted a Bob Jane dealer on these Maxxis, and found both the All terrain and H/W exceeded diameter limits.

Refer to tyre replacement thread for a broad range, and double check that OD is within limits as slight variations occur between brands. As a guide expect to pay from $160-$250 depending on brand.

Re: Maxxis tyres?


Every time I ring bob jane they push the Maxxis UA 603 (road). For some reason they always push the 235/60R16 when the same tyre comes in the standard 215/65 the OD of the 235 also exceeds the std rolling diameter by about 4mm.

Geoff interesting price as a week ago in Cairns they wanted $170 fitted and balanced - I know things are more expensive up here but being a suspicious bugger I suggest checking out the manufacture date to avoid getting stuck with oldies

I'm about to do the cheap and dodgy and will report at Noel's insistence in the main tyre thread

Brook,

The "cheap and dodgy" sounds good considering the price you can get them for.

At the end of the day it doesn't matter how much you spend on your tyres, it's value for money that matters emoticon

Even if you get over 40,000kms with the cheap set, your well ahead over someone that has chosen an expensive tyre with double the expected tyre life.

There will be less wheel alignments, choosing an road tyre over an all-terrain also means better fuel consumption, etc, etc

Am interested to see how these handle for you mate.... The main thing will be the handling in the wet...

Re: Maxxis tyres?


I am also getting a set of the Maxxis MA-P1 next week to go on my recently acquired 16" alloys.
These are a highway type tyre & at $169 each they fit my current financial situation.
Will report next week on how they feel.

I also considered the MA-S1 (at the same price) which is a directional tyre more for the SUVs/AWDs, but did not like the look of the pattern so went for the more conventional style of the MA-P1.
