700c whitewalls for white bike?

Does anyone know of any 700c whitewall tires?

I just got some new white wheels (weinmann dp18) for my white fixed/single speed conversion and I was thinking about matching them with some white wall tires... but I've been having trouble finding any. Thoughts?

Sorry...i thought you were asking for all white tires.
All white tires dont get that dirty.
As for just white walled...there are many more choices out there.
Google it.

haha yeah i found those too.

I'm actually leaning toward these vittoria rubinos which only seem to be for sale in the UK ($15 shipping to the US... so about $50 for the pair). But for now, I think I might just pick up a pair of basic forte tires at performance for $6/ea to get me rolling.
