Wheels dying

Hpi dont have blue wheels to the 5t, so i needed to do them by my self.
Dye color was something from my local supermarket, not the best, but it did the job.
Rit would be best, but that is not on sale here in Finland, i dont know why.
But here are the rims after dyed them.
Got set of hostile mxt tires and hpi molded insert today from ddm, so it was time to put they to the wheels.

Stil need to get rear wheels and dye them too.
I must be careful that i dont make them too dark, or too light.
It would be best if i gould dye them together, but this time it was not possible.
Those wheels and silverback orange hd bedlocks look good with my gulf body, when i got all done i need to take picture of that..

Black wheel´s are some how too boring, like you see in this picture.
Ok homies.
Rear wheels came today, and i did the job.
Thank god my wife was not home, because i need to boil those wheels in a soop pot...
Im a bit disapointed to my self, because rear wheels came a bit darker than front ones, but i just need to live with that...
I used this dye color, rit is maybe better..

Wheels were white as they can be, brand new..

Time to boil them..

And wash them after boiling in to the water.
Do use salt, more salt the better the results are.
I used 1000gram table salt

Ready product on the rim.

As you can see, left one what i did earlier, is a bit lighter blue than the rear wheel is.

If it does get bothers me, i need to dye those front wheels again.
Ready to put them to the baja,.

Tadaa, almost a match..

And it is quite a fun to do this too :)
And for sure you can do other colors as well, like red,yellow,orange...
And these colors are not expensive.…=item23213a77af
Ther are also other colors, but i have used these to brands only..
For sure you can´t dyed dark colors, like black, but grey you can do to a black or dark blue.
And wheels are not the only one´s you can dye, like rpm suspension arms, those white ones can be dyed too.

You guys should try, but dont do it then when your wife/girlfriend is at home, she might not like it :daddeln:
