I'm looking for a pair of folding, orange training tires, size should be 700x23C.

I'd like to have only an orange stripe, not the whole tire.

Can you recommend some model?

Ok, I agree it was a silly question. – Simone Nov 25 '10 at 7:43
It's not silly, there's just some disagreement about whether or not it fits in with the site. Welcome to and please keep asking questions! – Neil Fein Nov 25 '10 at 16:26

Check out the Michelin Pro 3. 700 x 23c, folding bead.

how did you find these? A google search didn't work for me. – Neil Fein Nov 25 '10 at 16:25
It didn't work for me either, that's why I was asking :) – Simone Nov 25 '10 at 16:28
"orange tire folding 700 x 23c" on google images (… ). It was somewhere in there. ;) You can also refine searches by the colour of the image (… ) but that returned only completely orange tires. – Vache Nov 26 '10 at 13:54

The Vittoria Rubino Pro's have a kevlar bead (foldable) and in the past I have found them to be excellent value for money. Maybe too much orange?

A little googling goes a long way...

I didn't realize that one of my favorite tires (Continental Grand Prix) comes in many colors, including orange:

Tufo also makes sweet tires, some in orange:

Also see the Vredstein Fortezza Tricomp alt text

if you just want stripes on the side, either ride through some fresh asphalt or hold a black marker to the tire while riding. – David LeBauer Nov 30 '10 at 6:32
