Because many conditions affect a tire’s life span, it is impossible to predict how long a tire will last. Tires can be affected by conditions including climate, storage practices and usage etc. Maxxis does offer a limited warranty on trailer tires up to five years from date of manufacture, so please check our warranty page for more details.
Maxxis recommends checking tire condition before driving and seeking a professional opinion when abnormal tire appearance is observed. The most common condition is sidewall weathering cracks (multiple cracks along the flex area of the sidewall), usually related to long term inactivity, direct exposure to UV rays, direct exposure to high levels of ozone, or exposure to alcohol or petroleum-based cleaners. If internal tire components such as steel or fabric body plies are visible, please change the tire and consult a professional immediately.
Maxxis recommends maintaining at least 4/32nds tread depth when the tires are in service. Tires should be checked by professionals at 6/32nds for potential issues.
