I have done the same, it works really well, but make sure the wife is not home and protect your counter-tops, especially if they are white...

+1 for rit dye. I was a dye nut even before I got into R/C, and now that I am here it is just great! Get the rims you want in white, the dye will make them as black as you want.

White wheels + RIT Dye = endless possibilities.

I don't like them, screws with depth perception. The contrast of white and even more so with yellow helps a lot.


Either way, I have a set of black proline rims. So... they definitely make or made them at one point.

New Rims + Can of Krylon (Black Spray Paint) = Black Rims

Now that is the ummm I guess you could say my southern way of making black rims, and if you get good at it you won't have drip runs on the rims.

If you want the newer style of rims for tuggy (AKA, Proline VTR) you can buy them ion white and then use the Rite dye (I buy it at wal-mart) and then pick a color. You would want to use a pot that you were thinking about replacing because the pot will also be dyed.

Ofna makes black rims for buggy. Just not sure if the are the proline v2 or v1 style.

I also wanted black wheels and I just bought some AKA white wheels and dyed them black. Worked awesome.

Caster Racing makes black, white, green, and yellow for buggy and truggy. Buggy has 4 different styles, truggy has 3 different styles. We just have not had much interest in them, but they are the same as the others with the new plastic.
