    Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

    Bought these for my daughter's campus bike and she loves them. They give a nice comfortable ride. There was enough difference in the ride for her to text me a thank you for putting them on her bike. Doesn't get much better than that.

      Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

      I have owned many of these tires over the years. While often inexpensive, they are now comparable in price to other name brands. Over the past year, the quality control on these tires has become horrible. Two of the last three I've purchased have twisted/uneven wire beads, resulting in bumps that can't be evened out by re-seating on the rim. I also suspect they have started making these narrower and of slightly smaller circumference to save weight and material cost. The last two were very hard to mount, which was never an issue before. I will not buy another and recommend avoiding.

        I don't have many miles on them yet, but they are 100 percent better than the big box store tires I last bought. I can't find any negatives. Good, reasonably priced tire.

          Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

          I right 12.5 mile each way to and from work. I can ride 2 to 3 days without re-inflating, durable enough to ride through some rough parts i.e. gravel from construction, and flat enough for speed. I average about 19 mph on my cheap nashbar road bike.

          It came with 23mm and I want getting pinch flats on the way home. Let out too much air sitting for 8 hours while working. These tires stay at 85 psi for a couple of days, and won't pinch flat either.

          I am now just shy of 200 miles, and no signs of problems.

          Good Solid Tire

            Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

            Wow! Impressed by this tire. I've had Vittoria, Continental, Hutchison and other brands and for the price this tire is great. Was actually lighter than I anticipated and has solid construction. Has a nice smooth roll to it and is pretty grippy. It seems to me after years of buying all sorts of tires there really isn't that big a difference between the average road tires. Yes, you might be able to get a much lighter tire for more money but it will wear quicker too. For the average biker who doesn't obsess over grams and wants a good solid tire that will last as long as any other this does a nice job.

              Mainly rails to trails and gravel rides with these. Seem to be doing rest so far.

                Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

                I have used the Prima Plus 2s exclusively for several years and have been very pleased with them. They are durable and the kevlar belt is effective at preventing punctures. I've written reviews in the past but decided to update since I just replaced my rear 700 X 25 Prima Plus 2 after 6961 miles. (It had only two VERY minor blemeshes. The previous Plus 2 on the rear was replaced at 5443 miles. The front Plus 2 is still without blemish at 12,091 miles.

                I ride only paved roads--a lot on the Blue Ridge Parkway--and most of the roads I ride have good quality pavement with limited trash. Still, the above mileage obviously demonstrates excellent durability. I weigh 180 pounds.

                I can't evaluate their race performance but they are an excellent durable tire for the recreational riding I do that involves lots of climbing and long 25 to 35 mph mountain decents.

                  Fourth set for me. Average 2300 miles per set. ONE flat in just under 10,000 miles total for these sets. Smoother ride, lower rolling resistance than previous brand name tires. I ride 25-40 miles per day because I'm addicted to bicycles. Help! There is no reason (except racing for $$) to ride any more expensive tire.

                  First set of tires had issues and one tire came off rim while riding. They were replaced for free by Nashbar. The replacement tires are much better and have had no issues with them.

                    Good tire for the price. Very inexpensive and durable for the price. I've put about 1200 miles on my set and am just now feeling the signs of them wearing out. I did decide to replace them on the next level up tire from Nashbar only because they aren't that much more expensive(another plus from Nashbar). We'll see how those are in a couple hundred miles.
