Yellows looks awesome on your vehicle. Definitely a good choice.

i run what ever color i can get the cheapest i cant remember when i bought a brand new set of tires and wheels
lol They recently started selling Yellow Pre-Mounts, I picked up a set of Soft Cityblocks with Yellow wheels Friday at the race. That's the tires I ran during the main, I'm starting to think I should have run the mediums I had been too. But live and learn lol

You get what you pay for with Wheels, I run either Losi wheels or AKA's. I haven't had a set of Losi wheels crack yet, but when I got in racing I cracked some ofnas and pro-line wheels.

What kind of dye do i need, and where do i get it?

I have some old white wheels that are scuffed up. If i died them yellow or blue, would it hide some of that? or would it look bad?

I use RIT Dye and it works awesome. You can usually find it in your local grocery store or Walmart.

+1!!!!!!! Prep and Shine works on many things. I even spray down my electronics with it.

I actually prefer yellow wheels but with my paint scheme see my avatar yellow wouldnt look so good.

I use RIT Dye as well. Works great! I think it took me @ 25 min of soak time to dye my red set of Truggy wheels....and I left them in a tad too long. lol When I dyed my Black set, I left them in for a few hours to get the purple tone out of them.
