What will dye bike tires? Answered

I tried asking this before, but it never appeared. I want to put brightly colored tires on my bike, but they're expensive, so I'm looking for some kind of product which will dye my black tires. Paint will wear off quickly, so I need something which actually penetrates the rubber. I'm thinking vinyl dye could work but I'm not sure.

There's probably a paint for restoring whitewall tires.  That could work.  Ask at an autoparts store, or try JC Whitney or Eastwood.

You can't dye black lighter. The rubber has carbon in it so you can't bleach it then dye it either. Paint or pennies...

That's going to cost money - but white would be easier to do I'm sure.
