Peace of Mind from Maxxis at no extra
We are so confident in the quality, reliability and durability
of Maxxis product that we have no hesitation in offering a
replacement Guarantee if our tyres are found wanting in terms or
manufacture or materials. This confidence is based on the knowledge
that Maxxis tyres undergo such a rigorous development process
before being brought to market. This cornerstone of Maxxis
corporate strategy has been pivotal in its success and continues to
raise the bar for standards in the whole industry.
The Maxxis Guarantee
1.Maxxis will replace a tyre which demonstrates a defect due to
the manufacturing process or materials used. 2.Maxxis will replace
a tyre which shows irreparable damage resulting from normal road
use. This Guarantee operates independently of the purchase date and
is non transferable from the party named on the Guarantee
certificate. This Guarantee does not affect your statutory rights.
Replacement is based on dealer assessment where a replacement value
is calculated based on the amount of tread used.
Maxxis recommends the following key areas are checked to ensure
that your tyres continue to perform with the safety, grip and
reliability you demand. The following should be checked on a
- All tyre tread depths including the spare, must be within the
legal minimum limit of 1.6mm for cars or 1mm for motorcycles of
tread in a continuous band throughout the central 3/4 of the tread
width and over the whole circumference of the tyre. Most safety
advisers however recommend tyres be changed at 3.0mm.
- Grip diminishes progressively with wear and as a consequence
stopping distances, especially in the wet, become greater.
Check your tyre pressure, from cold, regularly. Over or under
inflation can both cause problems.
Not enough tyre pressure can lead to
- A reduction in grip
- Structural damage due to excessive overheating
- Increased fuel consumption
- Irregular and premature wear of the shoulder areas of the tyre
leading to early replacement
Too much tyre pressure can lead to
- Excessive wear on the centre of the tread and hence early
- A greater chance of a tyre blow-out
- A less comfortable driving experience
- Greater vulnerability to obstacles in the road
Tracking and Alignment
Tracking and Wheel alignment should be checked at regular
intervals. Poor alignment and tracking causes irregular and rapid
tyre wear resulting in the need to replace tyres more frequently.
Visit your tyre retailer regularly!
Inspect your tyres for visual damage
If cuts or bulges in the sidewall are visible, take the tyre to
your tyre retailer immediately. Uneven wear can identify issues
with tracking, wheel alignment and axle geometry. Regularly examine
wheels for deformation and damage which could in turn damage the
tyre. If a tyre suffers a violent impact, have it checked over at
your tyre retailer as soon as possible, even if there is no visible
