WTB Orange Treaded Tire

I am still looking for a 700cx22 any out there?

Hi, I posted this on another thread and had no response so I am going to try here. I am looking for an orange-treaded 700c tire with a tan sidewall similar to the one below....any manufacturer is fine Conti, Vredestein etc.
Decent rideable condition, it does not need to be NOS and it can be a tube or tubular.....any make is fine. PM is the best way to respond.



I hope someone has a used one in their stash.
Best, Ben

Sorry I can't help. But I'd agree orange is the classiest tire.

iabisdb,
You are reading my mind. I am hoping to find a spare on the forum.
Best, Ben

Those Pirellis are really hen's teeth nowadays, even in Italy.

Good luck!

edit: also, 700s and i just noticed you appear to be hunting 26"

niliraga,
Too bad they are black walls....glad you caught the error, I am looking for a 700c, not a 650.
Best, Ben

Ben,
Try this track tubular on for size. You will need to clean the concrete off the centerline of the tread, But it is orange, Smiles, MH

Ben,
i gave the tire a quick inflation and it is truly an 18mm tire width, but it was just fine at 90psi. Once again my hoarding of eclectic parts has paid off for C&V. Next project is to start the Paramount build. Smiles, MH

Hi,
I am still looking, the tire that MH offered was a little too narrow...I need a 700c-22 any help much appreciated. It does not need to be a Conti and I would consider a tube-type tire.

Hi, I posted this on another thread and had no response so I am going to try here. I am looking for an orange-treaded 700c tire with a tan sidewall similar to the one below....any manufacturer is fine Conti, Vredestein etc.
Decent rideable condition, it does not need to be NOS and it can be a tube or tubular.....any make is fine. PM is the best way to respond.



I hope someone has a used one in their stash.
Best, Ben[/QUOTE]

I need a 700c in order to match the 650c on this.
