Default Primewell Pz900 245/40/18

I was curious if anyone was running the Primewell pz900? These are dirt cheap at Firestone ,and was curious how they were? They have the 245/40/18 for 80$ a tire. The tread design looks decent ,and appear to be an all season tire. Anyone know anything about these?

never driven them, however when I worked for Firestone, they seemed to be a decently respectable entry level replacement tire...

do not expect a ton of mileage
do not expect a ton of performance...

The only brand I would get from firestone would be Bridgestone Potenza or Turanza.

I am not really expecting much out of them for 80$ a piece. They have to be better than the Falken Ziex I purchased 1 year ago ,and are worn out at 20k. I was just hoping someone had them. I have a stock Gs300 so I don't need much performance out them. I drive like an old man

I read somewhere that said Primewell is a sister division of Bridgestone.

I have put 20k on them ,and they are almost bald as of now. The tires were rotated every 7k or so . The ziex were decent tires , but they wore out to too quickly... I don't think the Gs need an alignment, the car rides amazingly.
