Hey I heard the colured tires are alot cheaper so when I need a pair I might get the black, there made from airplane tires. And yes they do make the color black.

You know they are retreads, right? They say that they are safe, but would you really trust them in a turn that you are leaned all over, getting crazy?

just put some pirelli diablos on.but with a120/70/17 on the front.just about fitted under front hugger with abit of space. once scrubbed in they are mint around coorners,slow or fast,tryin to work out if its because its the different profile or the different make. had michelin pilot on before with 120/60/17 on the front.

Retreads are perfectly safe up to what ever speed they are rated for. Semis and Airplanes have like 85% of their tires retreads

BUT

They are silly...

Coloured retreads pass our test up to 160mph


COLOURED tyres are about to hit Britain's dealers - and MCN has tested a pair to around 160mph.

Show up to a track day with those spooned on your bike.

It will be like those Fox Sports Net commercials with the dorks showing up at the extreme sports events with all this fucked up equipment.
