According to my experiments, the tube gets the color of the C1' atom in
the sugar. Thus first color the C1' atoms the desired tube color, e.g.
with the command
color hot pink @c1'
or, for different colors for different residues
color dodger blue :7.a at c1'
(residue 7 in chain A)
and then use the Nucleotides tool to generate the representations with
tubes. I hope this is what you had in mind.
