    white tires

    Anyone know a source for all white 27 x 1 1/4 or 27 x 1 3/8 tires? I'm trying for a real old timey look on a fixed gear bike I'm building up. I've seen some of the new "retro" Felt cruisers are coming with all white tires, and they look pretty cool.

    I can get you all the white wall 27x11/4 you want for cheap at my lbs. but they are not solid white.

    Not interested in white walls, looking for all white.

    I'm curious: who makes the white-walled tires nowadays?
