Hi... When I look at some old school mountain bikes I see that lots of them have cool coloured or gumwall tires...

Do they still make them like that?

I come from the road bike world where every colour you can imagine is available...

On my Rossin I was even able to get brand new gum wall Vittoria tires... they still Make them exactly the way they did back in the 80's...

Any ideas???

Thanks!! =)

I saw some new looking white tyres on a bike outside Evans, the make
was something something like Gearx.

Try this mate: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=246208

Most links go to UK sites, but I'm sure the tires are available in Canada as well!

Were you after full colour or colour mixed with black or skinwall.
I have seen some Duro tyres (particularly the beachcruiser ones) which are
available over your side of the pond but not sadly over here.
I was after some to make a colourful mtb/slick tyre retro hybrid.
