Default Primewell PA100 Review

so i figure i will let you guys know how these tires have been for me.

I have used them on dry roads (went 85mph max with em), wet roads, gravel, loose dirt, snow and ice, and drove across a very wet field (basically mud).
Have a total of 5k on em.

On dry roads they are noisy and not the best ride. They have no sidewall strength. I have them at 35 psi and they are still bowing out like a mofo. I did some 0-60mph runs and timed it. a horrible 9.342 sec. my buddy has the same truck and will get it to 60 in 8-8.5. so something is up there. I figure the horrendous rolling resistance and poor comp of the tire attribute to the slow time. THEY JUST FEEL DANGEROUS

On wet roads, almost no grip. on hard packed snow roads same story. Going through the field these things just held onto the mud and barely could keep it going.

Good deep snow traction, works on gravel pretty well. and they are dirt cheap.

conclusion: Pure garbage. Just going to get rid of them asap. They are cheap and just not worth it. The only reason to buy is if u want to sell ur truck and wanna keep ur good tires for ur next truck.
