1980s BMX gumwall colour tyres!

Hello, my name is Luke I live in the United Kingdom and I have been selling color gumwall tyres for around 18 month to countries and retailers around the world.
I was unable to offer to these tyres to Europe due to restrictions but now these have been removed and I am now able to sell these to Europe and the United States.

I have these available in green, black, red, yellow, white, pink, orange and blue.
The tyres have gumwall sides and are available in 20x1.75 and they are very good quality tyres that meet global standards.
I will be able to offer these for sale soon and would like feedback.
I have taken a few pictures below of the range of colors.

hmm, monochromatic gumwall tires? That would be possible, but the only color available would be raw rubber/gum.

full colour tyres are easy to manufacture, but why?

The idea is to re-create a tyre from 1980s and in 1980 - 1996 gumwall tyres were the ones out.
Full colour tyres look ugly and clash with the wheel but gumwall are a true BMX tyre.

much like the Scwinn Stingray is a true BMX bike.
like I stated - these are completely nostalgic and I would be interested, but branding them as the "only true bmx tire" would be a mistake.
