Blackwall motorcycle tires have black side walls, meaning they have no raised lettering or whitewalls. Fully black tires require a greater amount of carbon black as both reinforcing tire filler to improve durability and color pigment. They also require less maintenance to stay clean, which many bikers favor. Besides its basic functionality, if you’re looking for modern, minimal styling and a uniform appearance, blackwall is the way to go, especially if you favor large wheels with low-profile tires that have no room for a whitewall.
The side wall is the outer surface that protects against weather, abrasion, tearing, and cracking. It provides lateral stability and prevents air from escaping the tire. In addition, it also protects the sides of the tire from impact with the road and curbs. Besides looks, the tire you choose should be based on how you ride. Some tires have stiff side walls and pointy profiles while others have soft side walls and round profiles. On one hand, soft side walls offer riders a more compliant ride and confidence in bumpy corners. On the other hand, stiff side walls give a firm feel. Round profiles give riders a consistent line while pointy profiles are better for riders who like to lean.
