Incredibly stupid question about new Panaracer logo

Hello folks, does anyone know whether / when the new Panaracer logo:
https://cyclingindustry.news/panarac...logo-identity/

will appear on products?

(in case anyone is wondering, yes I want to pay full price only in case of new lot with new logo)

Probably when all the old inventory with the old logos get down below a certain level and is replaced with newly manufactured inventory.

Its their new logo- I would hope it would appear on products, otherwise why change the logo?
I enjoyed reading that press release- I get a kick out of reading the marketing stories behind logo changes. They are always so BS sounding, even the legitimate parts.

Looks like a logo for the back of a Jersey. Hmmm...

I just hope they do not get all "billboard" on the tire sidewalls.

I will purchase a tire with a simple sidewall that might be of less quality overall than a tire that can promise the world yet has the reflective ROYGBIV sidewalls.

At the same time, it's real like the very nose between my eyes.

I won't purchase the ancient ugly logoed tires when a new sexy posh pink logo has been shown to the world (actually I would purchase the ugly duckies at 50% list price, otherwise new sexy logo all the way).

Last year they came out with vintage style BMX tires which quickly sold out. They are missing from their new site!

Wait what? I see the logo below and dont come close to thinking it is an 'ancient ugly logo' that is an 'ugly ducky'.
Its just a 5" logo on a tire. When Im riding, nobody can even see it and when Im not riding, nobody cares.
Are you think opinionated on everything for your bike or is this just a specific one off issue? Do you get all bent out of shape over the shape of stem cap bolts too?

All seriousness, what tires do you currently use? Im curious what logo is acceptable.

Maybe they are planning to bring back the Smoke and Dart with the new logo. With the new logo no one will know it is 25yo tire tech.

What about rim brake vs. disc brake threads? Logos just don't have mojo.

Smoke/Dart combo in 29" format does sound interesting

They already did Smoke & Dart Classic Folding MTB Tire – panaracerusa

I borrowed these pics from the internet....







The modern one is at the top and you can see how they tastefully combined both the old logo's. But the new tire is way nicer! It's made of Kevlar and it a lot more flexible, and the big thing is that it's 20x 1.75 which like 27" tires was getting impossible to find. They quickly sold out and companies like Tioga are also making their version of a retro skin wall but I feel like the Panaracer is nicer.
