Maxxis is not off the market brand. First you need to correct that. Tires can not be imported while being inserted into one another. There is no way to verify what is in which tire unless you dismantle them completely and which importer would want his entire container to be emptied on the port and then filled again ? Absolutely bonkers. Not a single tire producer in the world chooses this method to ship tires and you can cross check with anyone. Only used tires and tires meant for smuggling are doubled or trippled.
I wasn't taking sides from the very start. I was just correcting the information you were posting online without verifying the facts. Just saying brother disinformation causes great losses to tax paying companies who work day and night to earn a living genuinely.
80% of the tire smuggled has a tempered date and receives plenty of sunshine. Can that tire be reliable ?
It is a proven fact that Maxxis is worlds 9th largest producer and there is no denying that, calling it off market or comparing it with brands like Nexen will bring no fruit.
