I ran through 2 sets of WWW Metzelers on my Volusia years ago, and finally decided that dirty whites on my bike looked worse than blackwalls. No matter how clean the bike was, if the tires were dirty, I didn't like how the bike looked. So to get rid of that annoyance (because I was riding on average a bit more than 10,000 miles a year) I went back to blackwalls.
But that being said, what anyone else thinks is irrelevant. If you want whitewalls, pink tassels, an orange seat, and multicolored spokes, who cares? It may not be my choice, but if that is what you want, go for it. You don't need to answer to anyone else here. So if you want WWW, go for it. If you don't like them, quit cleaning them and ride. They will be grey soon enough, and after about 12,000 miles (give or take a few) you will be ready to put another set on anyway.
Now that I got that off my chest, what oil should I be using???
I know you believe you understand what you think I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
