Being on the cutting edge of bad taste,I ask your opinion on painting your tire treads

It is horrible.

It looks like your 3 year old got loose in the garage with a crayon and you did not take the time to clean it up before going out for a ride.

I laugh at every bike I see with it.

Oh, and that is not exactly cutting edge.

I first saw it in the mid 90's

I think it looks stupid, but are you sure it's paint? I saw a custom bike that had tread like that, and it was actually molded into the tire.

If you could spell something in the groves that said back off or something like that when the tire was rolling would be cool. But not to color in all of the groves.

LOL.. that pic made me laugh... that is funny.

I am not a fan of the painted tread.. but i also am not going to hate on it. If YOU like it.. then do it. Just be sure it doesn't become a saftey/ slip issue.
