Looking for white tires...CrazyMan
Jul 9, 2003 7:17 PM
Hoping to find a nice set of clinchers that is available in some sort of white or black/white colour to match my bike.
I believe Vittoria has made them in the past, but I can't seem to find them.

They were Techno Pro's I think.spookyload

Try Ebay - just do a general tire search, as Vittoria won't allow their name to be posted there. They'll probably come from overseas, but the prices aren't bad.
Of the two, the Rubino is more durable, but the Open Corsa has a ride head and shoulders better.
Of course, the white part gets dirty fast, so keeping them white may be a full-time job. But hey, to each their own.
I've got some, but wouldn't recommend them..pedalpete

I got a pair of Rubino's, that I am waiting to wear down the tread on.
They looked great for the first few minutes, but now they are just dirty.
Cleaning the tires after every ride is a pain, and they only stay clean while the bikes sitting in the garage.
Why bother.
