I replaced the old Gommitalia tubular tires on my Raleigh Team Pro with Tufo S3 Lites, chosen because they are light (<215 g) and were >50% off (and thus less than half the price of tanwall Veloflex). But the Tufos are blackwall. As I feared, it doesn't look right. The bike wants tan/gumwall tires.
Has anyone ever used something to "paint" the sidewall of a blackwall tire to simulate a gumwall? What would you use? Or would you just slap yourself hard and go deal with something that actually matters?
