Primewell Valera H/T Tires

Has anyone tried Primewell Valera H/T 225/75/16 tires ??
I was offered a set of 6 Load Range E for $120 ea , and if i buy 5 they'll
throw the sixth one in free . Pretty decent price for a new tire , from a
Firestone dealer .
Just wondering if anybody has experience with this brand.

I don't know what you are going to put these on but the load range sounds a little light to me. Better check out how much your rig weights and see if they are ok. It's better to have over kill when you are carrying weight than to scrimp.

Sorry , should have mentioned i'm a 22 Class C . I'm looking at Load Range E , which is what my Itasca came with . I'm not going down in capacity .
My question is Firestone vs Primewell (offered by my Firestone dealer).
My other choice is Kumho , which i know a lot of owners use .
Thanks again

I would go with the Kumho tires, and step up to a load range F. It only costs a few bucks more for the extra load carrying capacity they provide. JMHO

I cannot recommend anything Firestone sells, either their brand or others. You remember Firestone made OEM Detroit iron tires called Firestone 500's in the '70's. Wife had them on a new '77 Buick she bought and all 5 failed before 20K miles. And Firestone corporate policy was to pretend that the tire failures were not the fault of the tire. Personally, I would not go into a Firestone dealership if I had a flat tire right in front of the store. Anyone company can make a defective product. But the good ones stand by what they sell. IMHO.
