 Spend the money on the firestone. Nothing wrong with the primex but they tend to chunk and rip easier. I have 2 primex on the front, and 2 firestone on the rear, couldnt get firestones that week when i had trouble with my 18.4's.

on the lighter machines I have had real good luck with Samson tires.  They a not As good as firestones but at half the cost they are working good.  I think they are much better than primex
