Michelin wildgripper sprints also came in amberwall and black. Quite a rare find these days though.

Swear by Charge Splashbacks. Great if you want retro look but for more road use. Have these on my daily rider.

Compass Cycles offers 26" touring or "all-road" amber wall in amber wall in 2.3", 1.8", 1.5", and 1.25"

https://www.compasscycle.com/product-ca ... s/26-inch/

The 2.3" Rat Trap Pass looks interesting for more commuter-oriented builds.

I was just about to mention these.
Fairly fast rolling, might be tricky trying to find some now though?

How long did the production last of these? I remember it being short but at the time you could pick these up for £20 new. I found the sidewalls to be very thin though therefor they didnt last very long.

I'm pretty close to buying a set of these for my commuter -

Got a set of the splashbacks fitted currently but they have been on there a few years and starting to wear thin.
