Colored Tires?

I've tried the search option but only road tires showed up. Where are there colored tires available for mountain bikes besides red?

I've one rear gumwall. I never even ride the same KINDS of tires front\ rear.
Colored sidewalls get dirty =look crappy quick.
Real quick that time I used engine oil for chain lube.
Sometimes I have a red front tire..that's the only way they come.

Well, uh, ummmm......... No. I just want to make it look puurrrty. And of course, I'd want them to be functional....tough, you know....for a mountain bike! Or am I being too girly girl bling bling?

GEAX has tires with teal sidewalls if that's what you have in mind. Michelin has/had red or green treads.
There are a few others but that's what comes to mind.

Michelin and Geax for green. Panaracer for red and blue. Hutchinson for yellow. And I'm pretty sure I saw some fatty Nokians in blue. Maxxis has some orange to them. What's next, hair gel questions?
