anyone see the colored rubber on the bike at the mxsouth website? They have them mounted on a bike at what looks to be a trade show, none for sale that I could see. anyone know any more info on those?

in an old Motocross Action they showed some red Kenda Millvilles for the XR50. It was at the Indy trade show I think. I dont know if they are for sale yet or not or if they are even gonna sell them tho

I talked to a lady at Kenda and the red millville tires for xr50s are just prototypes. They are still testing them. Its not for sure if they will be released, and no, you cannot get any samples.

you are right and you are wrong........BFG makes a colored tire for cars called a t/a scorcher.....and they leave a colored mark when you burnout.....yellow, red and blue.......you will more than likely leave a small black spot with colored chunks......however if you skidded it would more than likely leave a colored skid mark......just like when you dont wipe good enough.....hehe......

Why bother colored tires look cool when you get to the track they're going to be brown and covered with dirt almost immediately after you start riding. Now colored stret tires on the other hand would be cool. I just don't see how colored MX tires would work to well.



Just my $0.02
