Default Prometer Tires?

Has anyone heard much about Prometer tires? I saw an add for almost brand new 245/75/16 LL850 mud tires set of 4 for 100. These are a 10 ply load range E tire. I googled and could not come up with much other than they are made in china , and one site that rates tires gave them a 520 for wear which is 36% higher than a standard mud tire. If they are a decent tire , for that price I might grab them , and have an extra set of tires sitting around if I need them.I managed to see 2 reviews that said they lasted , but they were a smaller tire .Also not sure how they would handle as a mostly DD , so if anyone has some input.

Looks more like an all terrain. I dunno about you but I wouldn't run 10 ply Load Range E tires on a station wagon. Really stiff tire and will probably ride like it's made of concrete lol.

If you want a cheap but better tire, check out treadwright tires. Both my jeeps run em and got nothing bad to say.

All tires are different , and people get confused when a load range E , LT tire says max 80 PSI. That is not what you run it at all the time , it depends on vehicle , load , tow or haul , etc. In my work truck it is a 1 ton diesel with a lot of gear in back , and I run at the max 80 PSI on the back and 70 on the front.The engine weights 1500 lbs alone , and then I have that much in the rear for weight in gear.On the Jeep I would run on road about 40 PSI , maybe a hair more , off road would air that down to around 25 or so if I need the extra traction. The tires I have on now are an 8 ply extra load tire , due to the previous owner having a small trailer to tow. They are currently running at 34 PSI. With the 10 ply the treads are thicker as well as the sidewall , so as long as you don't over pressure the ride should not be too bad , although it will be a little stiffer than your standard c or d tire that isn't as solid and has less pressure.

The last set of E tires I ran had to be aired to 28 psi to get an even tread contact patch but they rode god-awfully stiff. I immediately sold em off and get another set of C's. Luckily the treadwright tires in 16" size offers C,D,E ranges so I can get the C's. Most brands offer 16" tires in D or E.

The E's would be a more durable tire off road though.

FWIW I have Prometers on my Jetta for now and they ride well, grip well, and handle well. They were cheap and have a nice tread, balanced easily, and they're not wearing quickly despite copious amounts of "spirited driving" and a few autocrosses.
