Hi everyone

Well i was looking at me Kona shred today at work, suddenly a idea popped into my head, to get it resprayed in desert storm camoflouge colours, contacted a couple of Bike resprays companies to see if was possible, after finding it was and getting ready to strip the frame and forks for the respray i had another thought.

Black tires would just look wrong, so my question is there any beige or brown Knobbly Tires available anywhere

Old butterscotch tyres? Will cost a fair bit though. There are coloured tyres available, just not sure about brown!

Like halo twin rails and sweetskinz :shock:

Maybe some sweetskinz? :?
