Nice man!

The last color I dyed was using Rit Aqua-marine liquid dye. Left wheels in for 4 days. It came out the brightest royal blue of all the wheels I've ever done. The wheels were 97a Powells though, so they took dye really well. I can see how the off white color of the F4's would sorta augment the color you'd be dying.
Nice job bro!  :)

Thanks, I took your advice and kept the water as hot as I could, so it only took about an hour or so. And when I took them out they were so soft they bounced like super balls haha

Haha, you should see what it's like dying Bones STF and SPF's! REBOUND gone wild after boiling i'm sure...never tried to bounce them as I let them sit in the dye for days after that that boiling point.

i finally got round to buying a set. 51mm Full Shape 98A Durometer. they were really cheap and in the full shape which is quite hard to find, i can't wait to see what they're like. just hope the fucking ground dries up sometime soon!

I wanna find the 98a's in 54 MM and full shape - but it's hard to find. Even the normal sites I check online don't have any stock.

Anyone know of a site?

I don't think they made the full shape in 54 this time around, it was 51,53,55 I believe

Got the 51mm 101 duro's best wheels I've ever had but as someone else said mine did get some chips out of them pretty quickly and some weird cuts on the inside, guess just from grinding square coping or something.

Ha, my instagram pic! The colored ones look good. Setting some up this week.
Got the scoop about full shape f4's and manderson shape, they are cutting new molds now, something was causing problems with the old ones.

If they make colored 99s in the wider shapes by feb, I might have to buy my first set of colored (non-cruiser) wheels ever.
Man the long board truck thing killed indy for me. I was willing to set aside the racism, but long boarding, gtfo... - DH

those colored ones look sick, definitely getting some. I tried RIT dying some orange yesterday and let them sit overnight, just made them looked like old yellowed wheels but I've had them since october so not too bummed.

I was hoping you'd see that, haha, can't wait for these manderson f4s, going back to the classic ones don't feel as good as they used too

Use a heck of alot more dye to the amount of water ratio, and make sure it's boiling hot.
Let them soak 2-3 days minimum, they'd get alot darker...and more "orange".

would it work with a similar dye like rit? i have some blank wheels on deck i'd try to dye and i have a small pack of random cloth dye left...
guess i'll just try it out and maybe throw a white-t in there, too.

For some really weird reason only Rit works. it's really weird. Dylon and Tulip dyes, which are in the class of Rit did absolutely nothing when I tried them both. Really weird, but only Rit works. The liquid Rit actually works best because it's concentrated, but the powder Rit works just as good if you can't find the liquid.

You can get a few basic colors of Rit dye at Walmart and Target, but Jo-Ann Fabrics usually has the most colors Rit makes.

thanks pals! i live in germany though. as far as i've seen, amazon seems to be the easiest way to get a hold of og rit dye. costs from 4-5 euros a pack so it's not even more expensive than common dye over here.
