I just ordered a set of 4 maxxis tires for our 08 32bl 5er. I heard a lot of complaints about the mission tires that came from the factory. So before I have problems I am upgrading from the mission ST 225/75 15 D load to the Maxxis E load tire. Besides I have a 8x16 tandem axle trailer that I'm going to put the mission tires on since the tires are shot on the utility trailer. What are your opinions about putting maxxis 10 ply tires on cruiser?

I think you made a great choice. I know Dayle1 has had them on his Cruiser for a while and really likes them. If we had kept our Cruiser that is what I was going to put on it.

Was there a difference in tire pressures ? I was reading that some wheels have limits to amount of pressure. Currently have PowerKing Towmax on my Cruiser with 8 thousand miles. (D Range also)NO noticable wear. 65 #'s PSIHave a 2,000 mile planned for July. Was thinking of Maxiis but probably not till 2010 towing season Heard 12000 miles kind of a max on S/T tires. Did you use metal stems ?

Always always use metal stems for your rims. the pressures are to high for rubber.

If you are planning to upgrade your tires, think about taking the next step and upgrading to 16 inch rims and tires. I have been running 16 inch rims and rubber since the day I pulled my CF32BL into the yard and I can tell you it makes a huge difference in both handling and piece of mind. The 32BL's have a 10 inch frame so they will easily accomodate the upgrade to 16 inch running gear. Edited by: 62dno

It's too late to change wheels to 16's since the 15's have been ordered and are in transit . I can't afford to change rims also. We have the aluminum rims on our cruiser. Will I have trouble with 10 ply tires on these rims since the 10 ply tires should be inflated higher than the original tires?

I'm not sure what pressure the Aluminum rims that are factory installed on Cruisers are rated for but I do know the ones that came on mine were also made in China... soit made the decision to get rid of em that much easier for me!I lucked out and found a set of 16" Eagle Alloy rims with the proper backspacing for my Cruiser on sale at a local tire dealer for $100.00 each, for that price I also boughtone for the spare in case I damage one on a curb or something.

The max rating on the chrome rims from factoryis the same as the max rating on the maxxis 10 ply tires. It was marked on the backside of the rim. Mounted and balanced yesterday.
