BMW (225/50 R16) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
I drive a 3 series bmw, Bought these tires new and this is how it breaks down....road noise, half the advertised milelage wear, you will experience grip and comfort for the first 5k then you can experience every imperfection of the road. I accept responsibility for not researching for a better tire that actually was congruent with the price and overall performance. Very unhappy!

I purchased these tires because of price about 5yrs ago. They handle great, almost no road noise. Very happy for such a low cost tire.

Given 73% while driving a BMW 530d Auto SE LCI (225/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 21,000 spirited miles
Put 4 of these on 3 yrs ago, not out of choice but due to budget or rather lack of. Despite the fairly detrimental reviews they really weren't that bad, bit noisy, but gripped well in dry and whilst wouldn't push them in the wet they weren't prone to aquaplaning. Lasted 21k miles but are now shredded. Good value for money.

Given 14% while driving a Nissan 300zx (245/40 R16) on mostly town for 5,000 average miles
This is the worst tyre I've had the misfortune of experiencing. These are dangerous tyres
Came on the car when I bought it, the grip was unbelievably terrible. Car was standard, and was caught out when the tyres span up in 3rd gear @ 70mph. This happened on many occasions. Couldn't go full throttle in 1st or 2nd gear as grip was nonexistent. I couldn't enjoy the car at all.
In the wet the car was just flat out scary, extremely unpredictable.
There was 0 feedback, you could never tell what they would do.
Luckily the tyres only lasted 5k miles before they were totally bald and needed replacing.
My brother who also had a 300zx got his with Pirelli p600s (aka the ditch finders) and he said these were even worse than they were, which is saying a lot.
They were replaced with thinner 235 Goodyear eagle f1 as2 and the difference was unbelievable. The car was amazing to drive, loads if feedback, wet and dry grip was great. Soon moving to 245/265 as2s.
There is no way I could recommend this tyre to anyone at all.

Given 23% while driving a Kia Motors (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 24,000 average miles
Wow what a shock. When I ordered my new car in 2012 it did not come with a spare and I asked for one to be included with a wheel as the car had a spare wheel well. I rather naively expected it to be fitted with the same tyre as on the car which had165/55 R16 H Kuhmo Solace all round, and I did NOT check on delivery. My BIG mistake because 3 years later when I was ready to replace the tyres I found to my horror that it was a Primwell on the rim in on the spare and considering it cost me £200 for this I am more than a little aggrieved. It was fitted for about a week before I replaced it with another Kuhmo and it was consigned back to be used only if absolutely necessary.

So lesson learned, I did not check and I was fobbed off with something less than I would have found acceptable. Take note Northgate Garage, Canterbury, Kent, You will NEVER receive another order for a new car from me! You only get to fool me once, another couple of garages have tried in the past and lost MY custom FOREVER.

Summary, this is a CHEAP tyre, expect poor grip, especially in the wet and poor wear resistance with increased road noise. I value my life too much to use inferior products and my dealer should have done too. I thought I knew all the tricks after 40 years of motoring but this is another lesson learned.

These tyres were ok in the wet and dry.
The noise though, was totally unacceptable, turned my normally quite car into a rumble strip. Changed them after less than 1000 mile. I just could not put up with the noise.

I bought a set of four. The road noise is terrible. They may be good for dry conditions but not for snow and ice. Totally helpless. Would not recommend or buy again.

I bought these tires for my ford focus ztw not too long, and i would not recommend these tires, no traction at all when there is an inch of snow on the road, my wife almost had an accident thanks to these tires on the first snow of the season, when i bought them i thought they were good Firestone tires but we find out the hard way how these tires perform on snowy days. Next time i will spend a little more for the safety of my family.

Given 34% while driving a Ford Fiesta XR4 (ST) (205/40 R17 W) on mostly town for 10,000 spirited miles
These were on the car when I bought it. When I first drove the car, I though my wheel bearings needed replacing, but it was just the tyre noise. Dry grip is OK, you can push them. Tyre wall isn't the best, you get controllable squirming. They perform OK under heavy braking. Wet grip is OK for what your paying, but you can easily lose control if pushing it. Tyre wear is below average.

Conclusion: You get decent dry grip for the price you pay, but everything else about the tyre is rubbish. Not recommended.

When I bought a new wheel and tyre package for my car, the guy asked me if I was concerned about road noise through the tyre. Having never experienced a noisy tyre before, I didn't think it would be a concern, so went the cheap Primewell. What a big mistake. Driving with these tyres, to quote another unimpressed person, sounds like driving a UFO. I am now COMPLETELY aware of what a noisy tyre is, hence why I found this site, to find a cheap, quiet tyre. Thank you guys for this site and for all the input which is going to help me make my choice for a replacement for these rubbish tyres.
