You're showing your age by pointing out a difference between gumwalls and skinwalls. No one uses the latter terms anymore. Gumwall is basically the catch-all for tires with "natural" sidewalls. All of which have less rubber on the sidewall to varying degrees.

Many Conti tires will gumwall themselves as the threads on the sidewalls all fray off, exposing the gumwall fabric underneath.
