Default Custom tires just for fun

I made these tires for fun. They came off this funny little tractor toy at Walmart. I pulled them off the rims and made my own. Here are some pics...



Took a 3/4" conduit coupler and cut it down. The stock rim slid in tight.



Tread is cool but not very good on traction. The rubber is soft but no even close to the stockers. Also the tire doesn't compress. I think it might look good on a scaler...plus it's wider!


Cut slots in the rim for the tire to rest in...holds nicely.






Here is how much wider than stock. Height is maybe 1/8" taller than stock.
