I'm thinking of getting a pair of Fit FAF tyres, but I wasn't sure if I should get a whitewall one for the front and a normal blank one for the back? I like this look but I wasn't sure how other people would react? Help?

I was trying to picture that & My thought was....

White Up Front - Night Vision Out Back...

You have a White Wall in the Front & then like a White Stripe on the Rear Tyre, So it's not so (Pardon the Pun) Black & White.

I was thinking about night vision, are they any good? They're £15 more so I bloody hope they are.. What's kevlar got to do with tyres? I'm a noob at the moment, starting off.

You're paying for the Kevlar Bead, Not the Night Vision Strip btw.

The Kevlar Bead not only makes the Tyre significantly lighter, It makes it easier to install as they're soft & pliable! I Highly recommend Kevlar Bead Tyres! But that being said a lot of Wire Bead Tyres are waaaaaaaaaaaay easier to install than they were 10 Years ago! I wasn't looking forward to installing My Shadow Strada Tyres & they went on My Rims easier than Fucking Kevlar Bead Odyssey Aitkens! I'd HIGHLY Recommend Shadow Strada/Valor Tyres btw!

Oh ok, cheers for that! I looked up the Shadow Strada Tyres and they look absolutely mint! But they look a bit too slick for me, cheers though! You've been a massive help. I've just ordered a whitewall and a night vision, can't wait!

Fafs are good. But 15$ more for the nigh visión is too much.

£15 more is for the Kevlar Bead, not the Night Vision Side Wall btw.

I had a FAF 2.25 for over a year and it still has 40-60% tread left and I NEVER once popped an innertube in it. Amazingly grippy too.

Make sure you get the 2.25 models though. The other thinner treads wore out super fast for me.

Get them the FAFs are really good tires just get 2.25 though the treads alot better and i think the one white wall and one night vision will look pretty cool
