Default Wheel Dyeing

I bought liquid dye at Wal-Mart today to dye my Proline Disc Wheels black. Will someone give me some mixing specs seens it is made for clothes, but doing plastic. Also the dye I bought started with a R that everyone told me to get. Also how long should I leave them in? I want it to be outlaw black.

Default RE: Wheel Dyeing

I used black liquid rit dye on a new bumper, I followed the instruction first and it did not quite came out black, more like purpleish brown.

So I use full strength with out water and boiled that for about 3 minutes and let it sit for many hours. Still did not came out black, but close like very dark brown.

Other than black, I used orange on my rims and I followed the directions except I soaked it longer and it came out pretty good.
