I can't agree more. Especially true, regarding girl's tanlines.
Summer's nearer here...

  I have always tended toward the pink/tan color. Provides an interesting color contrast.

  I remember  seeing pink rubber tires on things like tricycles, baby carriages and shopping carts when I was a child. I beleive that this is the natural colour of the rubber. It would not be surprising if at least some of the tires were that colour.

    Any sort of gray should be fine as long as you avoid white and coal black, even pink  is possible as seen on this picture of Danish B&S from 1911.

      Since nobodies answered, I’d suggest you paint them any shade of grey-black that you fancy. 

      There are no rules for tyre colour.

      Hello Listees,

      I'm in the process of researching some colors for a DH.2 for my father and I've run into something I didn't expect.  Wingnut Wings is showing the tires on both of their DH.2 kits as black.  I thought the whole black rubber tire thing was a post-war creation?  I know WW isn't infallible, but this would seem a rookie mistake if I'm properly informed.  Can anyone shed some light on this?  I've looked at pictures in the Windsock Datafile, and the tires DO look pretty dark.
