Try WD-40 I dyed some white wheels black with Rit Dye and I coat my tires in WD-40 then store in bags and after time the WD-40 has taken some of the black off.

toss them in some boiling water and it will lighten the color some, I have boiled old tires off some wheels that I dyed before and the color faded.

not sure what it'll do to the plastic, but bleach takes the color out of fabric so why not plastic? It may not be even when you're done, but I'd bet a splash of clorox in a gallon of water would remove some of the dye.
