Pirelli owns motorsports. Their focus is on performance and competition. They produce passenger tires for the average consumer as well but this is not their primary focus.
HOW COULD MAXXIS IMPROVE?
Maxxis has a heavy focus on the off-road market. Although the passenger tire market is heavily saturated, they are missing an opportunity by not advertising to that market. Right now, they attract adrenaline junkies. Regular, everyday drivers don't view Maxxis as an option.

HOW CAN MAXXIS APPEAL TO THE CONCEPTUAL TARGET?
Tires are durable, reliable and dependable. Much like our target, the MVP. More than tires, they are a tool in which a journey is taken. It's not only where you are going that matters but also where you came from. This relates back to our target when it comes to her students. Each student has a different story and background. Our target is the tool that will help guide them towards a better future.
Although Maxxis is primarily known for the off-road market, they can appeal to our target by focusing on the passenger tire market instead. Maxxis will shine light onto every day adventures rather than off-road ones.
