    Why? who has them? I've had them back in the day - Pro2 Service Course in pale blue. Didnt Michelin also do a darker blue in the Lithion (and maybe some others) range.

    Think OP is a USAnian. Blue has a different meaning in UK vs US. Not sure I'd want blue tyres and have people thinking I'm some sort of #toryscum.

    Being run by JV. Vittoria Corsa in blue but only on the front. Some sponsor thing. Looks dreadful. Over on cycling news. Just awful. Need to be at the front to stop others staring at them.

    Given Dennis anathema for anything up to date he’s probably riding steel tyres on his wooden wheels.

    Even if they didn't look stupid, no.

    Since changing from colour matched tyres and bar tape back in the 90s, to black/black, I have not missed cleaning my tyres and bar tape.
  • No, because they look utterly awful.
