the white color is achieved via cotton candy compound?

Exactly- sticky, doesn't last long, you feel a bit sick afterward and regret having spent the money. Haha. 
It truly is a romance of many dimensions, isn't it?

I've had white Suelos (not kevlar) for 3 months now and no problems, nor are they very worn and I ride quite a bit on lots of diff surfaces. My friend Billy has a black Suelo tire he got about the same time as mine and it looks like his is in the same shape as mine. I used to have white Primo Walls awhile back and those beasts lasted as long time, too. Not all whites are equal.

EDIT: Like y'all are saying, tire wear depends a lot on how advanced a rider you are and/or how much spinning you do. Spinning on rough surfaces really seems to wear a tire out the most. Billy and I aren't doing that much crazy stuff yet, we're still basically at the beginner stage. Alexis the expert will tear through a tire lickety-split.

Never rode KHEs but it seems like the verdict is that they're way too sensitive and dainty for asphalt. More suitable for smooth floors, and even then they're still very temperamental.

Khe tyres suck.

Frequency G > all. the end. goodnight
You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Interwebs his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To Troll! Period! Win by attrition. Well Blindingsun was the best
