I know colored tires are taboo and border the realm of pie plates and reflectors.
But I have seen these mtb tires that are a light greenish teal with gum sidewalls. I have ebay'ed and googled the hell of this description and surfed many websites and have come up with nothing. I dont know who makes them.
Anyone have any not obvious directions to point me in? I feel like I have searched all corners of the internet.

I think the tires you're looking for are called Michelin Wildgripper Lite S. They've been discontinued.
Here's a CL ad I just found - http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/bik/3411327291.html

^^ Whats above or,
Your best chance is to search ebay. Eventually old stock tires come up I found some gum wall Ritchey Speedmax 1.9's awhile ago and saw many other brands even some Panaracer Smokes, regret not getting them.
Yeah, ollllddd michelins. Panaracer might still make some colored ones, I see red ones around, they also made blue I think. All black makes you ride faster though ;-)
