Panaracer coloured sidewalls

OK, may be a stupid question, I like Fire XC Pro's and they come in different coloured sidewalls, nothing suggests this is anything more than tarty colour coding, nothing on Panaracers own website even mentions it, so do the colours mean anything (I like red but wouldn't pay extra for it) or not?

    Nope, they're just colours. Often the plain black are a bit cheaper though because people are tarts and like colours.

    I like colours....but no way would a pay much more (maybe a quid a tyre at most) for it!

    Thanks, Black is the new Black I think!

    Just make sure they are the Pro's. Lots of people seem to advertise the wire bead as Pro.

    In fact there is no Fire XC without the Pro (maybe was once?)
