You're starting to sound like a poser now...lol Why can't you just buy one of those colored tires online and sell the used one? You'll probably end up paying more for the paint job on tires than the actual cost of tires

I didn't say I liked it or would use the stuff. I wasn't asking for your opinion. If this is going to turn into a slam forum, just because someone doesn't match your style, then consider me out.

I my head... I don't think they were talking to you. Second, I think some people, inlcluding myself, just don't like that look! TWF has never been a "slam forum"!

Looks cool for a show bike but just doesn't seem practical on the street....

I'm not a fan of the way they look either. Then again, I haven't polished a frame sense the early 90's. I'm more into function over looks now.

He's not talking about colored tires, hes talking abuot coloring the valleys of tread, so the parts that don't make contact with the road are colored. I have seen it done where it can look good, depending on the colors used and the tread pattern. It was a red and black honda as well, with the red highlights in the tread on a Pilot Power, looked pretty good actually.

I put those tire pens on our site about six months ago and I still can't believe how many we have sold. I just figured it would be one of those things that would sell every once in a while, but they are actually quite popular.

They come in five different colors, and even though it's not my personal preference, I have seen a customer or two who have done it to their tires and it didn't look half bad.

seen it on an older gixxer 600 (white and blue) he had white treads, it was okay looking, but it seems like too much work.

I second that. You might as well have a big sign above you that says "SQUID"

If you want color buy a neon or led kit...
