CST or Cheng Shin Tyres make tyres for a lot of manufacturers which then get other companies' logos put on them (and are sold for much more than CST tyres are!) so chances are you're riding a pair right now. They are the parent company of Maxxis one of the biggest names in mtb and road tyres. These tyres will fit all 26 inch mtb wheels, they have a kind of V pattern tread if you look at them head on which means they steer better through mud, but you can reverse them to give you better grip and traction on the back. They probably aren't good enough to race on but that's not the point of these, they're a strong looking tyre which are good enough for every day use and the odd bit of off roading. You will not find a cheaper pair of tyres, time will tell how long they last.

Update 05/02/13; I have had these on four months now, i do a journey of roughly a mile or just over a day to work there and back and a six mile round trip most sundays. I have had no trouble with these tyres and no punctures, they show little sign of wear, hope this helps.
Update 06/10/14; These tyres have been on just over two years now, there is some wear to the back tyre but there is still at least a years life left in it doing a mile and a half a day on average.

If you're looking for good value tyres which do a great job then I can recommend these. They are easy to fit, quiet on the road and well suited to mixed terrain. Used daily for a month - no punctures, no problems.

Last time i bought a single tyre of the same quality as this was about four years ago from a retail bike shop which cost me £15 so going on inflation (excuse pun) that same tyre would now cost about £18 or more hence getting two of the same quality for only £12 at £6 each is an excellent price.

When i saw the price of these tyres my hackles naturally went up thinking it's too good to be true with a catch of them being low quality seconds being sold off cheap but no they are good tyres which will last.

The tread pattern is quite chunky which acts as a bit of suspension on the road and also makes the tyres less prone to punctures.

I cannot accurately say how they would perform dirt trekking off road as i don't do that but with the feel of them i'd say fair tyres for doing that but doubt if they'd last as long as on the road !!!!!

Grip on tarmac and concrete - 8.5/10

Grip on wet tarmac and wet concrete - 8

Grip on dirt tracks (Dry mud and rocks) - 10/10

Grip in wet off-road mud - 9 (for best grip put Front at 36 PSI, Bar 2.5) (Rear 43 PSI, Bar 3)

Grip round comers - 8.5/10

Breaking grip - 9/10

Speed - 9/10 (Front 65 PSI, Bar 4.5) (Rear 65 PSI, Bar 4.5)

Comfort - 7/10

I would recommend these tyres to a person if there journey was more off road than on.

I would recommend using the Schwalbe City Jet 26" 26" x 1.95" tyre if you cycle on road or cycle tracks as they have a great rolling resistance and better grip in dry and wet.

I was a bit sceptical as to whether such cheap tyres would work. Well they really do.
I'm not an expert rider so don't have lots of MTB experience but they do everything I ask of them.
They roll well on hard pack and grip well in the muddy stuff. No punctures yet.
They have to be a total bargain!Raleigh CST Eiger Mountain Bike Tyre 26 x 1.95 - PAIR

The bike is ridden mainly on lanes and stoney tracks. The bike I ride wasn't expensive and I was plagued by punctures from stones pressing through the thin rubber of the tyres. Fitted these tyres and riding on exactly the same courses I have not had one puncture. I am quite a hefty bloke so there is quite a bit of weight being forced down onto the tyres and they have performed admirably. When I made the initial purchase I thought the cost shown was for 1 tyre and I was absolutely "Gob Smacked" when 2 turned up. What was even better was that it was NOT a mistake!!!!

Brilliant value for money, excellent tyres. Good depth of tread, really grippy when the going gets slippery. I am well pleased with this purchase!

I got these because I had three punctures in a week and was sick of wasting money paying too much for tyres that punctured so easily, with the price being low I wasn't expecting much but they've been on now for around four months without incident. I'd recommend these to anyone
