Hello chaps

Does anyone know where to find amber wall tyres from, I am looking for some around 26 x 1.8 sizes, all the bike shops and CRC seem to have all blacks tyres.

Any info will be great, cheers

I remember the thread Kaisers talking about - as I recall it basically concluded with the advice to keep an eye on ebay.....

Try these Guy

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PANARACER-FIREXC- ... 240%3A1318

Think they're being missed on searches as FireXC is run together.

I've got a set of these (waiting on something appropriate to put them on) and can confirm they are proper normal amber-wall not the yellowy colour seen in the pic.

Good tyre too
