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?

But then again, Jeff Williams made sense when he said they get dirty real quick.....

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?
