Good Tire for the price

    Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

    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.

    Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

    Ive got about 100 miles on one of these tires on the front wheel. It mounted easily just using my hands, but the tread is already noticably worn. The rubber seems to be pretty soft. Don't see them lasting long on the back wheel. If I get 1000 miles on them they arn't bad for the prce. We'll see.

      Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

      I installed these tires the same day I installed a new set of Continental Grand Prix 4000s II on my wife's bike. The front tire of the Continentals tore on the side wall right in the middle of a race! My Prima 2 Plus are still like new, and I will use them in an upcoming half Ironmnan race. I would sacrifice the heavines for some security! And at this price, these are my tires from now on!! For training and racing. However, I will rate them 4 stars because they are indeed a little heavy.

        Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

        I ride in New York City, where there's frequently glass on the road. I chose these because of the Kevlar and put them on both my road bide and my casual bike. After several thousand miles around NYC without a flat, I'm replacing them with another set of the same tires.

        May not be the highest-end tires out there, but so far I haven't had to stop and repair a flat on the side of the road.

            Over 3,500 miles on a set!

                Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

                Put these on a Specialized Robaix Expert. I've had these before and was going to try for 4,000 miles. Intalled a set and reset odometer, rotated them around 2,500 miles. Now at 3,500 miles I noticed front (was on back) shows a few cord marks. Should of rotated them earlier but 3,500 miles is no laughing matter.

                These rarely pick up glass or metal are comfortable at 105psi and last a long time. I give them a thumbs up!

                  I bought these tires for a Fugi I am restoring. I liked the ride so weak I bought another set for my Schwinn Varsity.
