    Top 3 Maxxis PRO R1 Reviews

    Given 59% while driving a Fiat Bravo (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 7,000 easy going miles
    My previous tyres was continental sportcontact 3. I had them for 77000 happy kms. Then for price reasons i skipped to maxxis r1. Compared to continentals softer ride, less noise,less responcive and with a feel of extra movement fro the car in the corners. The garage told me it is due to softer sides if the tire that makes it move a bit on the rim... and less grip than continentals more in dry and much much more in wet. Tyre wear extreme... after 12000km swithed front to rear tyres. An tis week after a hit on a hole in the rodad the inner sidewall of the front tyre failed. Continentals much much more endurant than maxxis. Never buy again. Concluded maxxis costed me more with worse characteristics. Their upsides were that they were more comfortable and less noisy.

    Given 90% while driving a Toyota soarer 4 ltr (245/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
    I have used Maxxis tyres on my 4 ltr toyota soarer for 10 of the 11 years I have owned it and for a "budget" tyre it is better than most and certainly better than celera tyres sold by bathwick tyres which I had changed to maxxis after only 600 miles, they were lethal in the wet, it probably depends on the car/tyre combination as to how tyres react to conditions but sure as hell maxxis pro r1 suit mine.

    Good budget tyre. Good dry grip qualities, like most budget tyres. OK-good dry grip qualities. Nothing exceptional on price or performance. Wouldn't buy again.

    Given 29% while driving a Ford Puma 1.7 (200/50 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
    I found these tyres shocking. My car slides when changing lanes on the motorway over the white lines. I found no grip when driving in the rain and absolutely no traction in snow.
    When the weather is dry, it's not so hairy. The traction is better but living in Manchester, it's more wet than dry. I'm changing over to Uniroyal Rainsport 3. I need confidence in my tyres & these just don't give it to me. They make my car feel dangerous. I drive a Ford Puma. They are a fun car to drive. It's not fun with these tyres & I miss being able to corner safely at reasonable speeds. I definitely would not recommend them.

    Given 70% while driving a Land Rover freelander (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 2,000 average miles
    Ok on the road and good general handling. These were fitted to my second hand Freelander 1 and I have driven about 2000 miles in wet and dry conditions. If I was a SUV softy and stayed on the road I would consider buying them again. I had an occasion where I drove along a progressively more muddy track and only got through due to the intelligent anti slip technique on the car. No use if you do anymore than drive over a wet grass field.

    Harsh and noisy ride. Grip and wear passable. Tyre was oversized and kept going down. Garage said it was a tyre problem but wholesaler wouldn't budge. Steer clear - poor quality control. Worst tyre bought in over 50 years of motoring.

    Not a great tyre for wet conditions. Found the car under steered in the wet. Dry grip good. Tyre wear was far too quick. They only lasted about 7k miles.

    I have had Debicas and Marshalls on the same car and expected the grip, comfort and durability of the Maxxis to be better due to the price and the fact they were sold to me as a mid range rather than a budget. The performance was no better than the other tyres and they wore out faster as they cwme with only 6.8mm tread as opposed to the std 8mm.
