Project Underground aluminum tires

Does anybody know what tires were on the Project Underground aluminum, also  referred to by some as Project Colorado? I can't make out the brand or size of the tires on the project oddities tab on this page, but they look like skin wall tires.

I thought they were Panaracer Smoke rear and Dart front.  You can get repop's still from Panaracer.

Thanks for the link. I just bought another Project Underground aluminum frame. Unfortunately I don't think a 2.10 will fit on the rear. Last 3 frames  I had to use 1.95  in the rear. I ran  IRC Mythos 1.95 in the rear and 2.10 in front.

Not sure I'm going to even build this frame, and if I do it will be a wall hanger for display, and if I do I  might try and  squeeze a 2.10 on back. I've had 3 other of these frames and rode them all, and unfortunately all  3 cracked  at the head tube. I have plenty of other bikes to ride, and I'm not in a hurry to build this one. They're difficult to find, and besides,  my wife still doesn't know I bought it.

I love those tires.  I have two sets.  Skinwall set on my 2000 Homegrown, and a blackwall set on my Schwinn Moab.
