Primewell PZ900 Reviews - Page 2

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.

Bought a comfortable Jaguar X Type just to realize that my tires have the noise of a Big Foot Ford pick up
In desperate need to replace them soon even with 3/4 of their life left

Bought 4 of these because they were cheap and on balance they've been ok in all departments EXCEPT NOISE !
As soon as I drove out of the garage, I noticed a 'whirry' noise from these tyres, that gets worse with speed.
Sorry Primewell,... I just wouldn't buy these again.

bought these because they where cheap and recommended. abs light comes on all the time in the wet and the traction control light flickers under hard acceleration. The only thing these tyres have taught me is to slow down in all weather conditions and how to correct a skidding car.

I am in the US and bought these on a budget. Noisiest tire I have ever owened and will not balance out well! Wet road condions the seem to be ok dry seem to do well also. I can't stand how they sound like a 4x4 truck tire. I am running the 255/50/17. Beware these tires are junk spend the extra money on a quality tire!

Primewell PZ900 is a Ultra High Performance Summer

People NEVER read the fine print. I see reviews complaining about lousy snow and winter tire.. umm ok. Their purpose is Ultra High Performance Summer.

People don't seem to understand how tires work. Reading reviews is as much attention to detail as what they write! These tires are great, don't read into reviews that critize SNOW for a SUMMER tire, you want SNOW you need ALL SEASON, I guess people have ZERO clue.

These tires are ok for dry or warm, wet conditions but absolutely horrible in any amount of snow or cold! No traction whatsoever! Will never buy this brand again.
