Default Colored tires

I was looking for colored tires for my bike. I know about tomahawk tires, but I can't find the part on the site to actually order them. Any suggestions???? I know that its kinda rice burnerish but I think it will look good on a black bike with blue add ons and maybe blue tires. Any input?

Just google tomahawk tires and you will see. I like the look. It is a fully colored tire, not just smoke. I know I saw another bike on here that had black tires with colored tread, where do I buy those?

I know exactly what bike you're talking about. But they weren't colored tires. They used a paint pen and colored them in. Here's the thread. And, there is a link of where I bought the tire pens from.

I just didn't know if anyone has tried the tomahawk tires. Mine doing it would be for daily use and a marker would be gone in sec. I just know im needing new tires after 30K miles, and I wanted to try something different.

For my Motocross experience, colored tired suck! Michelin had colored tires, and they wore out way too fast and way too unusual. Save your money and buy a nice pair of Michelin Pilot 2CT's

Hell, if you're just going to do burnouts, just use Shinko's.
