Hard earned money down the drain on those pieces of junk. Michelins on the truck driving the same miles and hitting the same curbs, pot holes and worse are just fine. ST tire manufacturers ought to be ashamed of themselves for putting out such inferior products. My beef is with the manufacturers, first with poor quality and secondly with offshoring the work. They can do better. They won't be getting my money again.
Were the maxxis the d rated or the e rated ones? What pressures were you using? How old were they.? Without this info your statement is not useable for debate.

Bought em brand new, E rated, run at 65 lbs. Going on the fourth season with about 15k miles the cords let go on one and caught just in time while setting up camp. Looked like a bike tire. No debate needed for me. I junked em when I got back home and went with Michelin 16" LT's and new Sendel's. Those Maxxis weren't aged out nor abused. The one that gave up was the rear on a dual. The one in front of the bad one was fine so that tells me it wasn't from any road impact. The weight on each wheel is within a dozen or so pounds when hitched. (Individual truck scales like the cops use. I should have heeded the warning from all the others on the forums but I couldn't afford new wheels too at the time. I chose poorly. Never again.
