I saw a bike in the Gunnar Rider Gallery with reflective tires (Matt from Chicago). Anyone know who makes them? What a great idea!

I'm running some maxxis overdrive tires for commuting on my crosshairs with the reflective sidewall. They are about the biggest tires that a crosshairs can fit at 38c. Specialized also makes a armadillo tire with reflective sidewalls, which would fit a sport or roadie, with decent flat protection to boot.

I'll check out the Maxxis tires. I'm running Armadillo (23c) on my current bike and I like them. I'll put some 25 or 28c reflective on my new Sport (that is as soon as I receive it) :) Thanks!

schwalbe marathon plus's also come with reflective sidewalls. they are awesome for nite and winter riding-- while not terribly supple (they feel like tank treads compared to my cx bike and road tires-- vittorias) they have also proven to be basically indestructible. a huge plus for a commuter.
