dyeing tires

Has anyone tried this successfully?  I picked up a used pair of white ACS trues to experiment with.  Seems lavish, but they will be the tire I use whether or not this works, so I wanted to try it on the actual tire compound.

I want to dye them brown, and leave the tan wall if possible.  Any tips or experience would be appreciated!

You might want to change your sceen name to wastingtimelikeitwasfree. Cause that's just not possible. Really.

Re: dyeing tires

Actually....I'm going to stick with conventional wisdom and just wait for some black tanwalls.  These white ones just have too much life left in them to be messin' around.

Re: dyeing tires

^ I'll google that, thanks!  For now, I'll hold out and save tires as the last thing, since I still need some parts for the build.  If no black tanwalls pop up before then, I'll give it a shot at the end.
