Any suggestions are much appreciated.

specialized armadillos come to mind... but, those are for road.

Thanks for the pen suggestion--I hadn't thought of that. It'll be cheap, if not long lasting, eh? As for tires, I am referring to black tread MTB tires for a 29er that have brown sidewalls like the specialized armadillo mentioned above. I've seen some in photos here, but haven't been able to ID any. I want them to match my brown brooks saddle (glam, I know). Thanks again.

if you are really trying to match your saddle to your tires, you might want to ask the SS/FG forum. they are really into that type of stuff. (matching tires to messenger bags, grips, shants, and whatnot)

SHants! Continental makes black tires with reddish-brown sidewalls for almost every tire in their line.
