This autumn sees the introduction the new Maxxis UR-275 series, which features an advanced tread compound designed to resist heat generation and a rib pattern that gives a smooth, quiet ride. Ideally suited to medium-size trucks, the UR-275 will be available in sizes 215/75R17.5 PR to 245/70R19.5. With low rolling resistance, an extra-strong casing to prevent punctures and abrasions, outstanding manoeuvrability and first class driving and handling stability, the UR-275 is set to compare favourably with the very best on the market.

The UR-275 will join the Maxxis UE-168, UE-100, UE-101, UE-102 and UE-103 series, all of which incorporate double-steel belts and continuous shoulder ribs for long wear. They are manufactured from a premium rubber compound with extra plies to combat punctures and abrasion.

The UE-103 features a rugged tread compound formulation and is said to offer good abrasion resistance, while high tensile strength steel-belts extend tyre life. R-, T- and H-speed rated, 195/65R, 205/65R, 225/65R and 205/65R sizes were added in the spring.

The UE-168 is R-speed rated with a 70-80 series profile, the popular UE-168 is manufactured with a double steel belt for durability and uniformity, while a jointless spiral-wrapped full nylon cap adds strength and stability. This pattern is available in a 12- to 16-inch size range.

The MA-751 Bravo is described as “a firm favourite amongst sports truck/pick-up/4×4 users,” and comes in 13- to 16-inch sizes and, like the UE-168, features a double steel belt and a jointless spiral-wrapped full nylon cap.

The MA-703 uses a double-steel belt construction for stability and long tread life, while the aggressive tread design is said to deliver smooth handling at high speeds.
