Grifter Tyre Reviews

Sometimes the best reviews come from riders just like you. Take a look at our user reviews below.

Rider,, May 2019

“These are hands down the best tyres for bmx. They have amazing grip on skateparks and on dirt, and last for ages. 100% would recommend.”


Rider,, March 2019

“The Maxxis Grifter tyre is strong, quick, light and will last years. These are the best tyres I have ever owned. I won’t be buying anything different.”


Rider,, June 2017

“Another great tire from Maxxis. One of the best tires I’ve ridden.”


Rider,, March 2017

“Best tyres I've had for BMX. Lightweight, grippy and also great to use as tubeless tyres.”


Rider,, September 2016

“This is the tire you want, you're in a need of a tire now right? and let me guess it's out of stock, boy doesn't that suck, so you want to be in the position to grab 2 new tires in 6 weeks or do you want tires that will last a year or more, look no further this tire is THEE CHAMP.”


Rider,, January 2011

“I replaced my old tires for the Grifters (2.2inches) and the first difference is they roll very nicely! The second being that these tires are like glue on anything (in a good way!). Foot jams are effortless and 180's are more dialled because I'm more confident with the stick that they provide, and you can carve on the flat a lot lower and braking is a lot faster (I run brakeless). People may consider £24 to be a bit pricey but they will last and pay off easy! Oh and one more thing they look very tidy!”
