Trying to compile a list of non-white tyres:

Onza - Porcupine - White
Tioga - Psycho K - Amber and Grey
Specialized - Various - Umma Gumma (grey) and Red
Ritchey - Z-Max - Red and Grey
Panaracer - Smoke & Dart - Amber and Sand (white)
Michelin -Wildgripper - Green and Amber
Michelin - Hot S - Red
Macaw - Varioius - Various


* Not sure if these were ever produced. I've seen pics of them on a '93 Mongoose AMPlifier (with gold Magic Motorcycle crankset) at a show.

What are these ones?

Specialized also did bright red tyres - aswell as the more common grey Umma Gummas.

Tioga did Psycho Ks in grey too I think.

I have Zmaxs in grey hanging in my garage.

Michellin of course did green minty coloured tyres too.

Whilst on Michelin, The Wildgripper comes in black and Day-glo green. I also recall them being produced in a natural/skin colour.
