      Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

      I ride in a cycling club every Saturday building up to 100 miles. I've used these for many years and they last a long time. I average one flat per set of tires where my fellow cyclist riding on light weight gator skin tires get flats all the time. A Great price for a durable tire...TY Nashbar

        Nice tire, get about 2500 to 3000 miles on the tire. Have been using the Prima 2 plus tires for several years and have been happy with their durability. Decent tire for the price.

              I've got about 300 miles on a pair of these now. They seem to be wearing well enough. A little slippery in the corners when the roads are wet, but what tire isn't. Good tire for the price.

                Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

                I originally purchased a set of these a few years ago in the 27 1/4" size, and was rewarded with 6500 miles of service, with a rotation at 3000 miles. No flats either! Soooo, it only made sense to try a pair in the 700 x 25 size on my new ride. Right now I`m at 4000 miles, just did a rotation at 3500, and tires are still in fabulous condition. If you`re not getting similar results, you`re doing something wrong. Pressure..... 100 in the front, 105 in the rear. Pumped up EVERY morning before I ride. If you let ANY tire get soft, it will wear quickly. I`m 5' 11", 155-165 lbs depending on the season, not exactly a lightweight by cyclist standards. And did I mention these things are light? Unless you`re a brand name snob, there is no reson to spend more. Price, performance, and durability, you can`t go wrong!

                Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

                I've been using the Prima 2 Plus for about ten years, the 27x1 1/4 on a 1985 Raleigh and the 700x25 on a 2009 Salsa. My rides with these have been on paved trails, city streets, country lanes, and busy highways ranging from a few miles to multiple century rides. In general I average about 3000 miles between tire changes on the rear and and upwards of 5000 on the front (just changing a front today at just over 8700 miles). My rides with these have been on paved trails, city streets, country lanes, and busy highways. I rarely get a flat on the front and only occasionally on the rear, and usually only once the tire has over 2000 miles on it. I agree with the other comments that point to the tendency of the "treads" to pick up minute debris that can eventually cause a flat. I generally run the 27x1 1/4 at 90 psi and the 700x25 at 95 psi.

                  Decent inexpensive tire for training. Put on two different brand rims without needing a tire "iron". Much better durability than low-end Hutchinson or Conti. I am a sucker for sales, and will purchase low-end tires when I should probably just spring for Gatorskins. I consider myself a connoisseur of lower-end tires and these are my new favorites. Tires in this space tend to vary greatly between batches, but I will be buying more of these. You will not confuse them with pre-Thailand Vittorias, but they are a great tire for the price. Have north of 1k on current pair, only one puncture and still serviceable.

                  I wish only that the 27 inch model was offered in gumwalls, as is right and proper for the old steel vintage rides I favor. I run these on all my 700mm wheeled bikes I own and find them very serviceable.
