    Anyone Had Experience With MAXXIS Tires?

    I am looking at getting some new tires. I came across the MAXXIS XENITH UN CATEGORIE TIRE for $9 a piece. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with these tires. The tires I have been saving up for are the Vredestein Fortezza Tri Compe in a 700X25. Is there a huge difference in quality, performance, anything? The $30-40 difference in price per tire is a lot. Just wondering..... Any replies would be helpful.

    I recently switched to Maxxis ReFuse 700x23c and so fare they have been very nice...no flats as of the switchover.

    FWIW, I'd like to try their Detonator line for my new bike...get the blue ones, pretty cool looking IMO.

    I don't know much about the Fuse. It's their training tire, right? How long have your tires lasted?

    How do you like the Fortezza Tricomps? I am thinking that I might just give in and spend the extra money, rather than feel like I am skimping by on the Xeniths.

    actually, i ordered them on the 3rd and apparently they still havent shipped out yet

    my friend, though, has a pair. they look great... the casing seems really nice and supple... quality stuff. durability is very high for a race-type tire. hes got a huge gash on the shoulder of the rear... but that says more about his riding conditiions than quality of tire, imo
