These are good tyres and I use them on all of my 26" wheel road bikes, including my kiddyback tandem. High pressure rating (85psig) and low rolling resistance. They've never felt skittish or unstable. I spoke to a guy at Halfords, who told me that they sell them for £8.99 because everyone else seems to sell them for that.
Said last time posted, these are the best 26" tyres for a road used mountain bike.

Great tyres, absolute pain to get onto the rim, watch your fingers!!!

Get a set of park tool tyre levers with nylon inside them for strength, virtually indestructible and makes it easy to fit these tyres.
good tyres. in a 26 size they are not a pain. try Marathon Pluses if you want proper difficulty level!

6.65 these are so much better
good but dnt over do pressure they start having cuts easily
I've got a Claud Butler Cape Wrath which I uses to travel to work to, all mainly road cycling

I take it these would be a worthwhile replacement for my current tyres

Thanks

Choose carefully in store, the last three of these tyres I bought had damaged wire in the tyre walls. Mr Unhelpful in Halford store said "Just keep them pumped up hard". Didn't work with the first one, first corner I lent into and the shape let go and nearly threw me off the bike. Lesson learnt. They were 2 for £15 at the time so a better deal might be had in future if you're not in a hurry to buy.

Maybe reduce the pressure slightly during the winter though. Had a few squeaky bum moments last year when it was frosty.

Excellent tyres though ... never had a puncture or had to replace after 2 years of use and travelling 5 miles a day on them for my commute.

Well, they certainly won't be tight on your 26" rims (700c)! X)
