Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

Tires are of low grade, very thin surface material. Maybe for someone who is 120 pounds and use them for picking up the mail.

Bought 25 width and seemed like a 21.

Very basic weak tire

By Louis the III

from Portsmouth, VA

About Me Avid Cyclist

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Versatile

Cons

  • Poor Construction
  • Weak No Side Support

Best Uses

  • Commuting/City

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.

    Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

    This is an excellent basic road tire at a great price. I'm now a casual rider after having done long distance riding and coaching a high school cycling team. I've yet to be displeased with a Bike Nashbar product.

      Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

      I bought the Prima 2 Plus only because Michelin did not have my tire size at Nashbar and Performance Bike. Compared ratings on the Prima 2 Plus vs. Forte LCR. Chose the Prima due to higher rating. I now have about just over 100 miles on these Prima's and it is a great value for the buck. Rolling resistance is minimal, cornering is great (thus far, tested on dry weather). I am amazed with the performance it offers. These will be my daily to use.

      Great training tire

      Comments about Nashbar Prima 2 Plus Road Tire:

      Normally when you need a training tire that you are going to put many miles of abuse and wear you don't want to spend much, that made me experiment with different tire brands until I came across the Nashbar Prima 2 which I found to be best suitable tires in my case after I have been using these tires for the past 5 years on my training bicycle. So I have experienced the use of these for a long time now: I only recall of a flat going over broken glass when the tire was pretty worn out, being that the case I put them on my racing bike for the past 6 months, yes they are heavy for racing but there's nothing like the peace of mind when it comes to getting flats, I race them at 125 lbs of air pressure in back and 120 lbs front which is much higher of the recommended tire pressure to reduce rolling resistance and by doing so I haven't felt much of a difference at the races from the "brand tires".
      I get around 1500+/- miles on them considering that I am not your common cyclist: sprinter, tall and heavy: 225 lbs. I have felt bad sometimes in the past to see some of the guys that have been training hard for a race doing great at a race and getting a flat pretty close to the end of the race. If you are not that picky about weight and want a reliable easy to mount tire these are for you.
      I gave these a "4 stars" because of the weight, but if you keep the recommended air pressure constantly and you weight less than me, you should be able to get many more miles out of the tires like some of my friends do.
      I highly recommend these if you are on a budget and don't want flats and ease to mount tires.

          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
