Default Dying Foam tires and rims

Got a set of Foam tires for my RC18B but they come preglued to the rims. Can I still dye the rim somehow?

Yep, mix up some RIT dye and bring it to a light boil and dye them as normal. This will not hurt the foam, I use to dye mine black all the time, never a problem.

It may not work. I tried this on an old AE 1/12th scale set years back and the foam shrunk.

Interesting. Never heard of that (but I'm doubting you) but would like to see it
