The Maxxis guarantee

  1. Maxxis will replace a tyre which demonstrates a defect due to the manufacturing process or materials used.

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. The cost of your replacement tyre is covered, however, there may still be a charge for fitting and balancing, please consult your Maxxis dealer

Be safe

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 regular basis:

Tread Depth

  • The legal limit of tyre tread depth in the UK for motorcycles over 50cc is 1mm across ¾ of the width of the tread pattern and with visible tread on the remaining ¼. For motorcycles up to 50cc the law requires that all the grooves of the original tread pattern must be clearly. Click here for more information.
  • Grip diminishes progressively with wear and as a consequence stopping distances, especially in the wet, become greater.

Tyre pressure

Not enough tyre pressure can lead to

  • A reduction in grip
  • Structural damage due to excessive overheating
  • 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 replacement
  • A greater chance of a tyre blow-out
  • A less comfortable driving experience
  • Greater vulnerability to obstacles in the road

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 damage.

Lifetime Guarantee Review

Big Bike Mad, September 2017:

"Something that came as a very pleasant surprise to our tester was Maxxis’ lifetime guarantee. Basically, Maxxis will replace any tyre if it shows irreparable damage just from normal road use. Nicks, tears, major punctures are all covered.

It’s a proportional guarantee, which means that the amount you get back off a replacement is dependent on the amount of tread left. It won’t cover every situation, and you have to register especially for it, but it’s a nice extra to have, especially on a budget tyre. It suggests to us that the company are confident of the quality of their product."
