So tan sidewall tyres have made a come back and become cool again. But I'm respraying my 1986 Carlton kermesse steel road bike, which has a modern groups etc on it, and will have brown charge spoon saddle, and brown bar tape. I was wondering, does anyone know of any 700x28c (or maybe even 30c) tyres that come in a darker brown sidewall as opposed to the lighter tan sidewall.
Any help much appreciated.

Think Conti Grand Prix Classics only go up to a 25c.

Panaracer Race D Evo 3, 28c and brown side wall. £21.99 at Planet X and there's 20% off tyres until tomorrow.

Thanks, the panaracers seem like the best option, and I hadn't seen the flash sale on planet X until now, which makes them even better value
