Gsxr asked a simple question...why is it that everyone feels like they have to post up their personal opinion and criticism? This kind of is turning people away from this forum and is getting out of hand in almost every thread nowdays 8/


I don't believe that any other tire manufacturer makes colored tires at this time...

Right on bro, this is getting old fast!

OP, if you happen to find an old set, check the date of manufacture before putting any miles on them. If the tires are for show only, it shouldn't matter how old they are.

I'd think if you actually used them after they've been dyed that the trad area would go back to black very quickly. Minds well spray paint the side walls for a lot cheaper.

Don't know if you'll be
able to find any other method of adding color to a tire that would look
very good. I'd research paints or coatings that could possibly get you the
effect you're looking for.

Chances are if it's just a show bike that you don't care about affecting tire traction.

Is it possible to do some kind of viny wrap on slicks or
something similar?

Another option would be to just paint the sidewall of the tire if the bike has to be ridden.

Can't seem to think of any other ideas though. Google searches have been
useless too. Apparently
nobody else makes colored
tires. Maybe someone in the show scence could provide better direction.

If I get banned it was worth it.

Don't worry, scrot. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick- lives.
