I bought these tires for winter use (we get a lot of snow in the winter, nothing for us to get a foot of snow overnight). Right now, I have these on my spare set of rims - waiting for the snow.
I used to buy the Primo V-Trak tires, but what I disliked about them was that they had such soft rubber that they wore down fast. Kinda like how regular snow tires wear down fast vs all year radials on your car. These tires have nice tread that is soft enough to grip, but no so soft that they feel like they will wear down fast, like the primo version did. The tread depth of both brands looks the same too.
These tires went on without too much hassle. One thing I did notice is they centered very easily - on the first try. The primo ones I got in the past always had a little off centerness, I guess you could say, which always left a slight bump when you hit that low spot. I did not see that on these.
Another difference between the 2 brands is the sidewall color. The primo ones I got in the past had a black sidewall with grey tread. These, the whole tire is the same color. Even though these only have a 55psi pressure rating, it gives enough pressure that they should work well with the pressure on the tire type brakes that are on most wheel chairs. The tire size I got was 24 x 1 3/8.
From my experience so far, I am very happy with these tires, and so far, prefer these over the primo brand version. If anything, my only complaint would be that you need gloves when using this type of tread. If you dont, then the tread will be very rough on your hands. I have no problem with a lot of other tires going bare handed, but these dig in a lot more, but on the positive side, if you need the traction, that also means that they will dig in and give you better traction too.
