So both my left tires are flat. One is not repairable. Both have pretty big holes. I have only had them for a month so is there any type of warranty? Maybe i should have went with the itp mudlites.. 6 plys my butt.

:icon_evil:Oh on a another not i almost died yesterday when my 4 wheeler flipped over as i was riding up a hill. I fell into a creek and had to crabwalk backwards to get out of the way. Yay for 2010.

I'm glad your ok too. Did the tires just go flat? If they just went flat It may have not had a good seat on the bead. 3m makes some glue for the bead to hold to the rim "can't remember the name" works great. or did something puncher the tire. They should have workmanship warranty up to ?/32 of the tire tread. I'm not real sure but I don't thank that the manufacter will warranty trail hazzard. And thats not just Maxxis I bet its all of them. It would be like having to buy road hazzard for truck tires. All you can do is contact the person you bought them from. I've had mine a month aswell and have had great luck. I do alot of deep gumbo mud with tree roots and who knows what else ,also rock crawling with them. Hope you have good luck.

See if you can find a shop that recaps big truck tires and see if they can do a section repair they won't guarantee it and you will have to run a tube in it but what they do is grind out the rubber in the damaged area put virgin rubber into the ground out area then put a hot clamp over the damaged area and cook the new rubber into the tire and then put a reinforcing patch big boot patch inside, i use to do big truck tire repair it can work in some cases you just have to find someone willing to give it a try. good luck. And its no fun trying to get out of the way of a 650lb machine flopping over backwards down a hill into the water been there done that lucky is all i can say, be safe.

I'd do exactly what 69Quadracer said to do. I used to work at a trucking terminal and have seen those guys fix some pretty nasty tire punctures. It won't hurt to ask them. Ride safe - next time you might a squished crab!
