I did mine on a stove of boiling water for 15min each wheel.

The "you can't see them rotate" argument is kind of stupid, because of whatever color it is it's still hard to tell unless you mark them. You can tell what the truck/car is doing traction wise by what the car does and how it reacts.

I did it because I had some problems with them cracking and I wanted to see if boiling helps. I had black rit dye laying around so I threw it in the pot with the water.
