    NEED HELP: Do they make PINK road bike tires?

    Hey I need some help;
    My girlfriend is wanting to dress her bike out in Pink. Not my first choice, but i can't talk her out of it, so I figured I would just go all out and make her happy. I am needing some CLINCHER tires 700x23 that are pink or have pink sidewalls. As long as they are pink they will be fine.

    All I have been able to find are the Stelvio Racegaurds ... but I am not wanting to spend $45 a tire.

    Is there anything else out there??

    PLEASE HELP ME OUT HERE!!!

    I understand, but you're still a sick boy.

    Buy a pair of red tires and leave them out in the sun. A couple of days on each side should fade them to some shade of pink.

    Yes, look for velocity deep v rims. Head over to the singlespeed/fixed gear forum and ask them. They usually have a good idea where to find them.

    I think he's referring to tires, not rims.

    Yet again sardonic wit fails on the internet. Miserably.

    The paint might adhere to the tires, but alas, it might also peel off when cornering. It's a terribly bad idea to actually ride them.

    I sprayed orange on a set of tires for my first century. There were traces of paint still on those tires when they wore out two years later. Latex paint might work better than enamel. There is a paint expert named something like Dr. Delron from the Monterey area. Ask him.
