    20" x 1.75 47-406 cream tires?? do they exist?

    Does anyone know if cream 20x1.75 47-406 cream tires can be purchased anywhere for a folding bike? I'm not having much luck and its a shame I love the vintage look

    I can find tan sidewall tires.
    cream seems to be old school BMX choice, so you'd have to find them as NOS.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    The ones on the Citizen Bike Barcelona are made by Kenda, not sure if you can buy them seperately.
    I do like how they look.

    Citizen won't sell those tires to anyone else. Damn, and I need some of these as well.
