Good

published

Bought a set of Maxxis from Stillwell Hyundai on my last service. I cannot recall the tyre type, this is was these ones. In general i've had the same brand on the past on other cars and they are good. Eliminates noise and are durable. Came with warranty which is great too. Car drives smooth.

Strong Brand, Reasonable Price

published

After doing some research I realize I didn't need high end performance branded tyres for my 2002 Corolla. I needed something that doesn't hurt my wallet yet not some ambiguous PRC brand. Thus I found out about Maxxis which is made in Taiwan (mind you Taiwan is not part of PRC and they are way different than PRC). I have done 10k on these and they still look almost new. Also it's a sweeter deal when it's buy 3 free 1 offer!

Bad in the wet

published

OK in the dry but drive steady in the wet around corners because there is not much grip wouldn't fit them again. They seem to be lasting OK at 18000 KLM built is a worry about the low level of grip in damp conditions. I think there are a lot better tyres for not much more money

Not safe in the wet

published

I haven't had the tyres for more than 6 months so cannot comment on durability and long term wear. Road noise is good, dry grip seems quite good also. However I really cannot recommend these. If I would enter a wet roundabout at anything other than a sedate pace the front tyres slip and lose grip. Honestly, these tyres scare me. If you had to quickly turn the wheel on the highway at 100 kph in the wet I would not trust them to maintain grip and avoid the hazard.The tyres came with a 30 or 60 day satisfaction guarantee and unfortunately we didn't have wet weather until after this period so I was SOL.

great tyres

published

I have had four of my cars fitted with maxxis tyres and that's all I ask for when I need tyres they have the best grip in the wet and you just notice the difference on the road I highly recommend them, they are also priced well and will last.

Great tyre for budget

published

I have two cars to maintain on a tight budget.The first car was fitted with a set of maxxis tyres some three years ago thirty thousand klm still plenty milage left on them. Second car was fitted with the MA-P1 just recently the road noise was less, the cornering was good, good in the wet, good all round tyre for the budget minded.

I just changed my 3 worn tyres today for my Daihatsu Applause with these MAP1, originally suppost be Kelly Tyres, but out of stock. So far I've driven on dry road (hope for raining soon, wanna test out the traction)...saw so many good review, I wanna give it a try ($79 per tyre)...together with alignment and balancing, all done....if is good, i wanna buy another 2 more (make it all 4 MAP1, and 1 MAP1 for spare).....
Cheap, saw so many positive reviews on this tyre
Not sure yet..nothing to say

Couldn't fault them, have just worn out a set over 4 yrs - would guess 55 - 60k in that time. Pd $80 ea THEN, now $92 - have now ordered my SECOND complete set of 185/70/R14 for 2004 Honda Civic with front and rear balance for $461 all up. Just over $2/wk over 4 years - beat that!
Quiet, exc ride, exc grip. I hate noisy tyres, these are NOT noisy.

A very good tyre for the family sedan, that should last well. I would recommend anyone checking the price before buying another brand.
Quiet and smooth. Perform well in wet and dry. They have been on the car for around 5,000kms, replacing Michelins, and for the money I can not fault them.
Nothing to date.

The tyres are wearing on the edges for one of two reasons. Out of alignment or your running them on too low a pressure. Go to 42 psi and have the alignment done. It gets knocked out fairly easily if you clip the kerb when parking etc.

Terrible

published

Will never buy them or recommend to any one else.
Don't waste money on substandard products.
Buy something more sturdy and reliable.
Cheaper than others
Poor quality. Had them on Nissan Maxima and the tyre fractured at 10k with a very low impact on a bevelled edge sidewalk at 40kmh. When approached, both Bob Jane and Maxxis company were nonchalant about the poor quality of their tyres, obviously they were well aware of their product. All they were interested in was making more money by selling more substandard tyres. They did not feel there was anything wrong with the tyres fracturing at 10k!
I would recommend staying away from Bob Jane and Maxxis both. There are better dealers and tyres available.

If you're stupid enough to run into curbs you shouldn't expect a long life from any tyre! Sub standard drivers shouldn't post reviews!!

I don't believe that. Just the same way as the Bob Jane mob and Maxxis didn't believe it.

Hadn't heard of them before, recomended by tyrefitter. Checked the U.S. government tests, rated 440 treadwear, A-traction, A-temperature, from A,B,C ratings. Put a set on the maxima 4 years ago and changing after 74,000 km bought them for $85 in 2006 now $89. Wish we had comparative Aust. government testing for local brands.
Good all round tyre well priced.
Performed well, wet, dry, cornering and low noise.

74,000! That's brilliant. And I thought I was doing OK at nearly 60,000.
