I'm looking for some tubs, preferably with tan sidewalls, that won't break the bank. I don't mind them being a current (modern) model, but the tan sidewalls would help them fit in on the bike I have planned. The only ones I've seen are the Schwalbe Milano and Montello models. Are there any others? I know vittoria, veloflex, dugast etc make them, but they're a bit more expensive than I'm hoping for! Thanks!

Vittoria Rally is their bargain model, which actually looks like the classic tub

whilst the Vittoria top end tubs look hideous.

The Vittoria Rallye is what I would have suggested as well. They go on straight and reasonably lively in use. Decathlon seem to be the cheapest but their stores aren't very numerous.
