Recommend a tire

Hi, looking to replace my 26 knobbies for something that will still have a bite on stone dust rail trails and regular hard top, good flat resistance as well. Current tires are 1.95. Thank you

do you want tubed or tubeless?
What tires are on there now and what's your pricepoint.
Many choices out there.

At $50 a pop these aren't budget tires, But I think there are a good balance for you. I might buy these myself when my 26 x 1.95" tires go. I think Schwalbe makes a fine tire at a reasonable price for average folks. Check out their other tires.

Looking at those and Land Cruisers by Schwalbe. Cruisers are cheaper.
