Colored Bike Tires

Hey, prob. in the wrong forum, but do any of you guys know where I can get colored 700x28 bike tires? All the colored ones seem to be either mtb or 700x23 and smaller.

Well, Michelin tires run wider than most, so you could come close to that width with a 700x25 ProRace2 or Krylion, both of which are available in many colors. My Michelin ProRace and Krylion tires in size 700x25 actually measure 27 mm across, although they are 25 high. They are significantly wider than many other brands in that size.

Maybe try these Panaracer-made Soma ones... I haven't tried them, but if they're anything like Panaracer's Pasela TourGuard, I expect they'll be great. Also, have you checked here? http://www.everybicycletire.com/

*ahem* In this century we call them African-American tires.

I like the Michelin Krylions, btw.

For a period back in the 90s, they were called "tires of color".
