Maxxis extends UK 4×4 range
Maxxis has announced the planned extension of its 4×4 tyre range in the UK, confirming the full availability of every tyre in it. The company says this move is a result of increasing customer demand from distributor Stapleton’s. The manufacturer is also readying itself to contest the King of the Valleys endurance event in August – its tyres were used by the winner of the inaugural contest in 2012, and Maxxis is confident the fierce competition will be the perfect showcase for its range. Maxxis Marauder, Bravo, Bighorn, Trepador, Mudzilla and Creepy Crawler tyres will now be available to UK dealers through the Stapleton’s distribution network.
This range of 4×4 tyres is the widest ranging portfolio ever offered by Maxxis to the UK, in a sector in which it claims particular strength. Maxxis International managing director Derek McMartin confirms: “It’s the first time we’ve been able to provide such a wide range in such volumes in the UK, and it’s got our distributor and dealers very excited.
“Stapleton’s have been asking us to extend availability for quite a while, with their customers knowing they wanted our tyres but not being able to get them. We’ve made the decision to listen to them and expanded the range, and now we offer something for everyone, whether they be running a Chelsea tractor or Dakar speed machine.
“The 4×4 sector is a very important one for us, and one in which we excel. Through extensive research and development, as well as successful participation in related motorsport competition, we’ve developed products that 4×4 drivers all over the world are desperate to get their hands on. Now we are able to meet that demand in the UK and we’re expecting to have to restock quickly after the initial rush.”
