As per title, what colour tyre do you think would suit my bike?

Basically I'm looking to put some MTB Slicks on it as I'm planning on visiting a local 1.2km tarmac track to build up my stamina/endurance for when I'm out on the ruff stuff.

Not looking to buy a Road bike so I thought if I lock out the suspension and fit some slicks for the once a week I visit the track it will help.

Anyways I'll stop waffling,

The options:
- Black
- Black with white wall
- Black with red wall
- Black with blue wall
- Green
- Neon Green
- Yellow
- Purple
- Orange
- White

The Bike:

I think I've narrowed it down to:
- Black with white wall
- Black with red wall
- White

What do you think?

:lol:

Curio tyres are dead cheap and many colours.

They have black with white walls too.
But not white with black walls, the Halo's look good, I have them on a bike.

Yeah exactly the same ones I was looking at. Oddly on some of their tyres they are cheaper onebay than their own site.

Think I'm going to go for the Black with White wall. :twisted:

I went for Black with White walls in the end, I think it will be easier to keep them looking fresh. :roll:
