OKAY, today, someone brought in a bike with white mountain bike tires, and immediately thought of this thread! I couldn't get a picture, but the name of them were "Tioga Psycho-k". They were completely white, not offwhite, aside from the dust on them from sitting around in someone's basement.

People dressed in plastic bags,directing traffic,I'm shattered.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Bruno und Zoolander Racing Team?! I've Appreciated all the help with information about "white tires" that has been directed towards my inquiry. The bottom line is that I've tried quite a bit of different components on my good old Merlin Titanium and tires have always been the item that are often replaced on it. I'm currently riding on Continental Explorer UST mounted on Mavic Crossmax rims with Mavic hubs. I find these tires,rims,and hubs to be the bag for the buck,besides they were on sale and worth the money spent. Happy trails and have a safe Summer. Ciao!- Carlos In Detroit.

I remember the Psychos being almost butterscotch pudding in color, maybe they made white ones too, but I forget.

I miss ye olde white Porcupines. I thought they actually had 'em in stock for a second.

Yeah, I know, but these were definitely white.

Ok I know this thread is old as **** but I figure it's always better to rise from the dead with old info behind.

Anyways, I'm trying to find a white tire in 26, cream or light blue might be ok as well, but the point is I need something non marking.
This is for bike polo, we've finally almost secured an indoor spot for Chicago but they don't want us to mark up the surface (Sport top? something like that) and my ribmo and the way I play make an awful mess of it. Clean up from one game of 3v3 took over 3 hours with various cleaners and rubber-rubbing bits.

I've found a few options but the hardest part of it is that my bike can't fit anything wider than 1.6.
The surface is light blue so I figure that would be fine, but we tested it with a white tire (700c) today and that left absolutely no mark, so ideally it would be something like that.
Can anyone help me out?
I could have sworn I'd seen a Kenda a couple months ago that fit these needs but for the life of me I cant find it now.

Seems like pedal gouges would be more of a concern than tires, but I'd go for cream color Fat Franks if I was you.

Ooops, didn't see the 1.6", hmmm.... Dunno if they'll make that.

Thanks but all those are over 2.0
Far out of my range.
Not that I wouldn't use a fatter tire, it simply wont fit.

Yeah, I think I may have found your Kendas.

Unfortunately also too wide

Well to seal this off, I was able to find these.
http://www.schwalbe.com/gbl/en/produ...kel=718&info=1
http://www.schwalbe.com/gbl/en/produ...kel=629&info=1

One is a trainer tire, 1.35, and the other is a wheelchair tire, 1.0.
Wonder which will make me eat sh** less.
:\
Thanks guys.

The wheelchair one won't fit a standard MTB rim. It's for the (one of the) other 26" rims, like from old Raleighs and other 3-speeds.

ETRTO 559 = MTB size.

It'll fit as soon as I start linking to the right page.

559.
Listed as 25x1.0 when you search by inches though, so strange. Everything should just be in ETRTO by now.
