Trailer FAQs

What is the warranty on Maxxis trailer tires?

Answer:

A tire is eligible for warranty coverage under this Limited Warranty only if the tire is presented by the original owner and consumer within five years from the tire’s manufacture date and the tire has a minimum of 2/32” of tread depth remaining, and all procedures in this Limited Warranty are followed.

What causes a trailer tire blow out?

Answer:

Heat causes excessive tire wear and blowouts. The majority of blowouts are due to running the tire with low air pressure, creating excessive heat and causing the tire sidewall to rupture. The leading cause for low tire pressure is a puncture resulting in a slow air leak. Unlike an under-inflated tire on your car, an under-inflated trailer tire is difficult to detect.

Should I mix radial and bias ply tires on my trailer?

Answer:

No. Radial and bias ply tires have different handling characteristics and should never be used together.

Can I put larger tires on my trailer?

Answer:

Maxxis recommends consulting your trailer manufacturer for the answer to this question. The trailer manufacturer can give you specific information regarding tire sizes and load capacities.

Can I go up in load capacity?

Answer:

Yes. It will not harm your trailer to go from a lower to higher load rating, but you should never go from a higher to lower load rating.
