New! Search for Maxxis MAS2 Marauder II tyres for your make + model.
These tyres were on the front axle of my 63 plate Jeep Grand Cherokee when I purchased, as new, but over the last 2000 miles, the road noise and vibration through the steering has become intolerable...sounds like the whirring noise you get when a wheel bearing is on its last legs. Recently moved them to the rear, and although the steering wheel vibration has gone, there is still some excessive road noise from the rear. Going to take them off, even though still 7mm tread left. Perhaps it is because these are an all season tyre, which isn't velar through some tyre retailers
When I decided to change the rear tyres on my X5, I spent a lot of time reviewing what was on offer across the various price ranges/manufacturers, my usual tyre supplier is a Maxxis supplier so after a chat with him I decided to try the Marauder II. Having gone through a winter I have to say for a summer tyre they have performed very well in wet, snowy and dry conditions, on motorways they are quiet and have a sure footed feel. I do not usually drive the X5 hard but on occasions when I have again the tyres have performed well. Once the front Goodyears have worn out I shall replace these with Marauders. I would recommend these for any SUV.
Had a pair fitted to the rear of my BMW X5, first thing that was evident was the noise, much quieter than my old tyres, very sure footed on the twisty bits. I have Goodyear Eagles on the front with 6mm tread left on, I will replace these with Marauders when they wear out. So far very impressed and glad I choose these.
