Due to a lack of tyres I have ended up using Kendas k-829. Its now my favourite tyre.

1994 Fisher Montare
1994 Specialized Rockhopper Comp
1994 Orange C16r (Not on Kendas)
1993? Cannondale SM800 Beast of the East
1998 Bianchi FY620 NTH Reparto Corse

My favourite to ride is the Orange C16r or the Cannondale BOE.

I have others that I am cleaning up. Thanks for looking.

That's quite a stable.

The orange is particularly nice but id replace the cables for lime green ones.

Wow! These are beautiful! Well done!

I'm a big fan of the colored tires, as well as other colorful bits (grips, cable housings, saddles, bottles cages, pedal clips and straps, etc.), and I've built up a nice collection of them, but I cannot find hot pink knobby tires like those.

I googled "Kenda k-829" and found some light pink tires, but not hot (almost fluoro) pink.

I also like those orange-juice colored tires. Where can I get some of those?

I'm also on the lookout for purple knobby tires, but they seem to be elusive.

Just yesterday, I found out about some celeste-colored tires. No, they're not knobby, but they'll suffice until I can find a knobby version. Here's a link and a pic:

Here are some more colored tires from Duro:

The Duro pink tires are not as neon "hot" as the Kendas IMO, and the Duro purple is more like a raspberry, but it does provide more possiblities if you're into colorful rides.

Nice, I like how they look.

Duro (cheng shin or CST, maxxis owner) have not a good ride quality. If they are only to show off they are ok but if you whant some performance ... no.

I'm big fan of coloured tyres, but they really do have to be used on the right bikes.
