BFG I think sells tires with red or blue stripes in the tread, so you can, ya know, do cooler burnouts than your friends.
Schwalbe and Continental makes bicyle tyres in a large host of colours ragning from white , yellow, green, red, blue, .... Anything to match the coloour of your frame basically; Schwalbe also haas triple-compound cycle-tyres in their product-line, for increased grip and reduced rolling-resistance. Surely, this could be valuable/applicable as well in the F1 tyres. I'm thinking then of extreme wets where the open tread-blocks are a softer compound then the lower more closed tread-blocks. If memory servs me well, I thyink Bridgestone started metnionign this somewhere at the same time last yr for the past season, but don't know if it actually was implemented.
