Tufo makes some, but they are rather pricey. Check www.biketiresdirect.com

What difference does it make? They'll just end up covered with mud anyway.

It may sound strange, but the green jets cornered better then the black ones do. Different rubber compound? Or maybe its all in my head.

Thanks guys! I think she will either go pink or blue to match her frame. And as for why do you need colored tires? Why not? Mud always comes off ... and they look pimp!
