Firestone Primewell Tires

Do to an emergency in OKC on 7/15/16, I needed a tire for our TT. Called Firestone and had a Primewell ST500 LR-D installed. I am totally ignorant on trailer tires. My question, did I buy a decent tire or junk? I have since ordered 3 Maxxis' to replace the other 3 tires on my TT

JMHO, but I would not mix tires, at least not on mine. I would get another Maxxis and use the oddball for the spare. Different tires with different compounds and sidewall would worry me.

Other than the mixed compound concern, are Primewells good tires?

Thanks,

I have a set on my daughter's car and they perform well. I used TireRack.com's website to compare them and the model I have ranked near the top in every category. Wet and dry handling/traction, noise, mileage etc. Had them 4 years now and they have held up well. That said, the STs you are talking about are not the same tire.
