    Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

    I bought these for their bargain basement price, thinking they might hold up as decent tires on my commuter. I thought wrong. Had two of them with side wall blow outs at just under 90psi (max inflation is 100psi). Note that this is not a problem that carrying a flat kit will fix. :( On the one I have that didn't blow out, the tread wore quickly. Would not recommend to any cyclist. Could be useful for a ring toss game.

      This is my second review and I just wanted to say these tires are great. I put well over 4000 mile on the road and finally the rear tire blew out. At this price I always purchase 2 sets, stand by set is installed and new sets ordered

        Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

        Usually I would buy 700x28 or 700x32 for my trek domane, i gave this tire a shot since the tpi is 60, more expensive tires have higher threads per inch, to me the higher the tpi the worse the bike ride will feel, it looked very narrow as well, but i was able to run thousands of miles on them and i just got one flat, most riding is in the city, so broken glass, etc goes into play. Tire liners are a riders best friend and i would buy this tire again, they work for me, better than more expensive tires.

            I have yet to cycle on these bad boys, but for mounting purposes alone they deserve 5 stars, never have I ever mounted a road tire with such ease, and compared to my previous tires these feel more durable.

              I got around 3000 miles on my first set of tires. I do most of the cycling on rails to trails which are paved.I was very happy with the tires. I bought two more sets.

                Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

                This is my third review of the Prima 2 plus tire posted over the last several years but my experience remains the same--Excellent. I have used them exclusively for multiple years and have never had a bad experience. I currently have a size 700 X 23 on the rear of my bike with just over 4000 miles on it. No blemishes yet but I usually get about 4500 miles on a rear 2 plus so ordered again. My front 2 plus 700 X 25 now has over 16,000 miles on it and still no blemishes, cracks, or other issues. There are lighter tires out there but nothing I could find to match the quality and durability of these tires for anything near the price. (I mostly ride the Blue Ridge Parkway which has good quality smooth pavement and my weight ranges between 170 and 180 so somewhat lighter tire stress than in many other areas, or for other riders, however, I still think the consistent durability of well over 4000 miles per tire is excellent. The protective Kevlar belt has also made punctures a non-issue. I can't believe there is a better tire value anywhere for the avid recreational cyclist.

                Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

                Dont know where the other reviews are coming from. I can tell you the tires is thin, looks flimsy, nowhere close in quality and construction as a Vittoria Zaffiro entry level tire or a Hutchinson of similar spec and price.

                I got 4 tires, sent them back using the 7.00 return shipping label. Tires are good if you are going to sell your bike or for goofing around town just a few miles.

                No, I do not recommend.
