What is the consensus on those colored tires weve seen in the mags. Anyone have them>

I think they look pretty cool for a show bike or something like that, but as for a daily ride I wouldn't. Last year at the Lone Star biker rally saw a '04 green kawi with the green tires and looked crappy cause the tires were turning black from the road...

i seen markers where you draw in between the lines of the tires which i thought was kinda cool, except when your going it looks the color you used so to each his/her own

I can respect those tires for a show bike, but other than that, it's completey "ricey" IMO. :throwup

I read somewhere that all the colored tires are retreads, not worth the chance to me. I als othink they look cheesy, and I personally would not want paint added in to my tire compound.

my .02 cents

I think they look LAME. I would never put something that grotesque on a clean bike. To me they seem to make the bike look cheap.

agree! If they are retreads.. then its a safety issue. WHo puts these out anyway? I woundt buy them unless they were from a reputable company like michilen, bridgestone, etc. :throwup

^ I read somewhere that they are made by the same company that makes the retreads for the major airlines, i'd still pass on them.
