Primewell Valera H/T Review & Rating for 2024

I struggled to find a car with Primewell Valera H/T tires for my review. Just as my search seemed hopeless, luck kicked in. My cousin’s neighbor wanted to sell a 2013 Honda CR-V LX. At first, the dull silver color disappointed me. But then, I saw the tires I was looking for!

I met the owner, a tall man in his 50s with matching hair. He had put on the tires five months ago. Their low cost attracted him. He planned to sell the CR-V in a few months for a new RAM pickup truck.

We shook hands. He let me test drive the car. I promised to fill the tank in gratitude. At the gas station, I checked the tire pressure. The sun was out. I felt excited. This was going to be a good review.

I sat in the driver’s seat, eager to test the tires. I was ready to give an honest review.

Primewell Valera H/T

Features

The Primewell Valera H/T tires focus on comfort and quietness over sporty performance. They are all-season tires with a symmetrical tread design and four ribs. This design is perfect for making highway driving smooth and silent.

The tires use active noise-canceling technology. Their block pattern reduces noise on various road surfaces. Additionally, the open slotted shoulder design improves handling in wet and dry conditions.

These tires are ideal for small and midsize crossovers, SUVs, and 4×4 pickup trucks. They come in sizes from 15 to 20 inches.

Test Drive

My 2013 Honda CR-V LX has all-wheel drive and a five-speed automatic transmission. It came with slightly worn Primewell Valera H/T tires. However, these tires had only covered 4,200 miles.

Dry Traction:

Primewell Valera H/T tires did well on dry roads at slower to moderate speeds. Yet, pushing the speed limit slightly reduced traction and steering, even on wet roads.

Wet Traction:

Similar to dry traction, the tires offered adequate grip on wet surfaces, but this diminishes at higher speeds. Handling the car beyond the speed limit requires extra caution.

Snow Traction:

While I didn’t personally test the tires in snow, the owner assured me they were acceptable on lightly snow-covered roads. However, their performance wouldn’t match dedicated snow tires, especially on deeper snow.

Comfort:

The Primewell Valera H/T tires excelled in comfort, delivering a smooth and supple ride even on rough city roads. They truly shined during highway driving, provided you adhere to speed limits.

Noise:

While affordable, these tires did produce noticeable road noise, particularly at higher speeds. However, the noise level was more tolerable at slower or average speeds.

Treadwear:

The Primewell Valera H/T tires wore out faster, common in budget tires. Still, their low cost allows you to replace them twice for the price of a pricier set.

Conclusion

The Primewell Valera H/T is a good choice for daily-driven crossovers and SUVs. It’s not the best at reducing road noise or lasting a long time. However, it offers great comfort and performs well in all seasons. Plus, it’s affordable. So, it’s worth considering for your vehicle.
