Bit too predictable there mate. But thanks for getting it out of the way early.

Ive seen these coloured tyres somewhere before. There are all sorts of colours available like blue, red, yellow, green, etc. Looks good when u do a burnout and theres all this green smoke around.

Yeah I recon they would be pretty cool for the novelty factor. Where did you see them?

That would be classic, green burnout smoke. I guess the patch you leave is also the colour of the tyre. Is that right?

yeah I can see where the rice does come into it. But I recon a nice set of grey tires on a white or black car would look sweet though, and not look rice at all.

lol @ Phil

I dont know of any place that sells the colored tyres, but from what I can remember they are NOT street legal as they encourage people to leave colored lines on the road.
