Lol. Colour coding bike parts is one thing, but colour coding to your car is another, hehe.  ;D

Try painting the walls yourself maybe. Find a paint that can be used on rubber??

I had pretty good luck with a sharpie while bored, just had to go slow. If its that big a deal, id suggest using pen white out, like from back in the school days.

You can buy white wall pens. hot rodding places have em.  you can make black wall tires white walls pretty easily.  some guys only use the pens for the lettering and some only use them to measure how much the tire folds during cornering, but on a bike it should last a decent amount of time.

Didn't Hoffman make a 120psi white wall? I don't think it was a very good tire, though.

Primo claims that the 1.5" feel more like 1.75"
I personally think that they are a little bit more narrow than 1.75" but, definitely something that can be ridden.

^ Thats the problem with most tires, the sizes they claim aren't really acurate. Tioga's does claim there sizing is acurate, other companies should start actually measuring there tires... :P

I'm riding the 1.5" comets right now and they're probably my favorite tire to date. But yeah, get a white wall pen from body shop or the like. Should last you a while.
Take it apart, clean it, regrease it, and put it back together. If that doesn't work, nuke it! ;D
