Who makes !00% colored tires?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Who makes !00% colored tires?

I remember having completely orange Vredestein Fortezzas 3 years ago, but I don't think they make them like anymore-just painted sidewalls.

Help?

That black is carbon particles. They're a good thing.

That's why I don't like them- black sidewalls!

What's the point of having the tread be colored when it's going to be black your first trip around the block
