Still cranky and broke

Still cranky and brokeCentral West, NSW

Value, but suspect in the wet.

published

Over the dry months the tyres performed well across all terrain types however with rain I noticed that handling in highway conditions deteriorated considerably. It was pointed out to me that there is a small rubber wall towards the outer edge of the tyre pattern which prevents water from evacuating the pressure zone, leading the tyres to possibly float on wet surfaces. I'm now looking at another brand and will check out tyre patterns a little more closely. Dry weather and rocky surfaces, great. Wet weather and tarmac, poor.
NB...The tyre pattern has maintained it shape better than some more expensive brands, such as BFG ATs over the same distance (60k+). Chipping was minimal, if anything at all.

Purchased in December 2018 for A$220.00.

170,000kms!

published

when it was time to retire my standard issue PX Ranger tyres, I was prescribed the AT980. This was at 95,000kms. I've not done 260,000kms and they're 1mm of the indicators. Amazing tyres, not too noisy or high maintenance. I went with the 275/65/17. I'm finally due for a new set. Cant believe the mileage.

Purchased in July 2016.

Really great

published

These are the first Maxis tyres we have purchased. Two of our sons run these on their 4 wheel drives and have nothing but praise about them. We found them the best value for money in the range offered to us at the time but now that we have had them for a few months we are totally impressed in road holding and performance.

97,000 KM and counting with never an issue

published

Installed these onto the UTE straight from the Factory and have loved them ever since. They've currently lasted 97'000km and I reckon they'll be good for another 15'000km at least.

Noise levels on the highway have been good, obviously louder than road tyres but not enough to cause any issues when using hands free.

I haven't used off road as much as I'd have hoped, but when I have they've been outstanding.

I will be buying them again when they finally require replacing.

Wouldn't buy again

published

Had the 31x10.5r15 on my car quite noisy when i first got them and they didn't even last 30,000 km before the outside edges started cracking and little chunks falling off and developing ridges on the tyre. They then developed a consistent "bump" when driving that persisted and worsened to a vibration, tyres were always rotated and always had good tyre pressure but made no difference. I think I'll be sticking to cooper tyres and just pay the extra for something decent.

Best tyres

published

Best value for money.
Best tyres iv ever had. Done 80000 kms in them and only 2 have reached the unroadworthy indicator. Got em on my work 4x4 and its tows a 2t tradesman trailer full time plus the odd 4x4 trip here and there will definately be buying them again. Highly recommend them.

Fabulous

published

We had difficulty with another Maxxis tyre and were advised extensively by the tyre expert at Uluru. He recommended the AT-980. Tough, he said. And he said that is the tyre the reps use in the outback. And we have never looked back re out outback travelling. Very fair price too. Noise pretty reasonable. Durable...yes. Sometimes it is harsh just getting of the bitumen outback let alone off road work.

Maxxis AT980 Bravo's in the Pilbara

published

Just wanted to share this feedback. These tyres are awesome out here in the Pilbara. We certainly gave them a thorough work out last weekend. We live in Newman and the track to Hickman Crater is pretty ordinary. It's been known to shred the odd Cooper or two in the past. These tyres are great on the iron ore rocks. We tried them out in the sand as well with no problems at all. Well worth going away from BG Goodrich AT's. Thank you. I highly recommend them to anyone.

Value for Money

published

Running good both on sand, mud and highway, a bit tyre noise at low speed driving but nothing much on the highway since wind noise is very much governing. It is more a light duty mud tyre.

Acceptable side wall ( not much deformation between 35psi to 18psi) and the tyre worn is acceptable.

Be ware on braking when raining or on icy surface. I was on a full time 4x4 with ABS so that was fine for me, but may be not as ideal for hard braking when rear wheel driving your part time 4x4.

Good value

published

Maxxis 980 at tyres are lasting well at 40 000 km so far, they hold well in the wet and they are quiet for an aggressive at tyre. Offroad and low pressure they perform excellently on gravel shale rock sand and even in mud don't let you down like less aggressive tyres can. Haven't had a puncture yet.
At $100 a tyre less than similar competitors they are good value though honestly won't last quite as more expensive brands, but dollar per kilometer they still come out in front.

Not very durable

published

Bought the tyres halfway through a trip after i hat two of my tyres blow out on my touareg. they are great tyres but after 4000km and only about 150km on gravel roads i got a puncture in the side wall. Could just be unlucky but a bit disappointing as they were never put through any tough condition.

Great tyres. wear well!

published

Had these tyres for 90,000kms and not even to the wear lines yet. Havent had a puncture and drive a fair few bush tracks. Handle well in the mud and off road. They are a tad noisy but that can be expected for a chunky tyre. I'll be buying them again.

Awesome tyres

265/65r17. Forestry contractor, the most durable tyre I've ever had. must be because its 8 ply, no punctures and great on the road and off road as well, I get between 50 and 60 thousand km's per set, got 6 utes all the same, cant beat them, amazing wet road handling as well.

28000 kilometres on MAXXIS AT980 tyres.

Put a set of 5 on AT 980 BRAVO on my Pajero. So far after on 28000 kms they are worn down to wear bars. I have taken them back to the dealer to complain so he rang Maxxis rep and as yet no response. Never buy them or reccommend again.

Crap tyres

published

Fitted a set of new maxis tyres to my BT 50, 15,00 kms later they were half worn and couldn't be balanced properly and wasn't very nice to steer. No help at all from the dealer who was blaming the vehicle. Went to another dealer and fitted a new set of Michelin, it was like going from a T model ford to a Rolls Royce. In 50 years of driving I have never had tyres as bad as these Maxxis.

Hi,

Had the bravo980 put on my 2018 Prado. Checked the tyre pressure yesterday and it was round 40psi.
Did my 1000km service today and been told by the Toyota Tech that the pressure needs to be 29psi. That’s way to low... correct meaning I’m wrong

He's an idiot. Find a better mechanic. I'm a mechanic myself, so it's not coming from an I'll informed person. Even 42psi is good.
