The problem with tweaking color tone is that the texture will look very fake. A better solution is to get more textures and have more tones that way.

Thanks guys. Wasn't sure if there is a "procedural" type color tone in those that could be shifted.

Sometimes it's hard to work with presets when you need a specific color. Using an external map like those from Sketchup is possible, but if it doesn't have a normal map, the bump won't work.
