Hi all

Currently building my 1998 Coyote HT3 Ultralite frame into a lightweight xc (XTR M952 group). Looking for some matching blue-wall lightweight tyres to fit the blue/yellow paint job.

Panaracer Trailblaster do them but they are expensive (£58 pair off ebay)

Any other ideas? Doesn't have to be period correct.

I had some Schwalbes with blue walls about 99 on my san andreas, can't think what they were called but I'm sure they are still in my M&D's garage. Will have a look & let you know.
