Maxxis IS Cheng shin tyre company. They made up the name because the Americans ( fuck yeah ) weren’t buying “ Chinese shit”. Dumb asses.

like LEXUS (Limited EXport  to the US)  because same reason..(no jap  toyota crap... when every part has toyota stamped on it, because it's a celsior)

the Maxxis tyre worked well on My falcon. i didn't like bob jane out of rounders on falcons

And there in lies the problem...

I want a nice quiet, safe, grippy and reputable tyre.... to suit 14x6 inch stock wheels.
And they don't seem to exist.
Not even for a fair price - say $150 - $200/tyre.

I'm more than happy to forgo tyre life, for good grip and a quiet ride.
It seems Australia has become a dumping ground, for cheap no-name brand chinese tyres.

Yes this true but unless you want European we will have do with what we got unless we can change government but their all the same so find the one you like pay the extra and enjoy the ride as I do.

So, I need to get a set of new tyres, for standard x-series wheels.
Who would've thought tyres to suit stock 14 inch rims, would be so hard to come by!

Decent tyres, not chinese ice stakes.
The original 'stock' factory fitted x-series tyres, were ER70H14 - usually Olympic or Goodyear brand.
ER70's, had an overall rolling diameter of circa 652mm, and a width of 206mm
'Modern' equivalent sizes, are -
195/75R14 - 648mm rolling diameter
205/70R14 - 644mm rolling diameter
or
215/65R14 - 636mm rolling diameter

So far, in 195's or 205's, I've found some Japanese made Dunlop SP Sports, (only available in Thailand though. :/)

Nothing in Goodyear, anywhere in the world
Bridgestone have 195's available in their 'budget' Supercat brand (chinese made though)
Sumitomo does all three sizes (Japanese Made)
Hankook Optimo's in all three sizes (Indonesian Made)
Nexen (also Indonesian)
Federal (Taiwanese)
and
Nankang (chinese)
All the above, are around $100/tyre.
The best tyre I've found, is the recently re-released Dunlop Sport Classics,
only in 205, of the three sizes..... but they're $330 a tyre!
Then there is also a retro Michelin XWX tyre, available - but the tread pattern is more 70's era.
.... and they're even pricier than the Dunlop Classics.
It's all a bit depressing tbh.
What tyres to all you guys have on your 14 inch stockies?
