I purchased the Maxxis Sport tires for our enduro event last year for two reasons.
- They were a good price. $235 CAN (taxes and brokerage landed at my front door 4 days after I ordered them)
- I wanted to do a tire experiment
Here are the pics I took of the tires after 190 laps of use on my DC-One/Briggs entry (5 laps of practice, 171 in the enduro and 15 laps on my shifter). What tires do you have left ? - CKRC Forums
Each raceday we do a maximum of about 40 laps. These Maxxis tires still have a ton of life in them and did not fall off at all.
When I tried these Maxxis tires on my shifter they were slower to warm up than Vega Whites which was to be expected but the grip level did come in and I was able to do very competitive laps with a best of 53.03 on a T&T night level of grip. I did 3 sessions of 5 laps each. After doing the testing on my shifter the Thursday after the enduro, I realized that we ran way too much pressure at 12 front and 13 rear. I torture tested them and went down to 7 lbs in the front and 9 lbs in the rears to see if I could get them to overheat which they did not. They just kept getting better.
