Tire Penz (New Trend?)


Makes your tires match the bike. I think its pretty cool but would like to know 1) how well they work in the rain 2) would they still be safe for cornering.

What do you guys think?

Shouldn't effect cornering, but might effect your sexual orientation.

I would think that eventually wears off and not too worried about handling since you're not messing with the contact patch.

I may be wrong, but isn't this what shinko tires were doing for the color bombs? You could do colored burnouts, but had just like 3 colors, blue, red and white. Not sure tho

It wont do color burn outs, plus the paint would/should not really be touching the ground unless you have no tread left. Im thinking we should go to pp1 with this stuff and show those custom busa who the real PP1'ers are
