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.
