I experimented with Dollar store quality Necklace chain. it is a PAIN to bend and fit. I only did one tire, didn't like it and didn't take any pictures unfortunately.

but its a good starting place I think. there are lots of cheap necklace chains you can modify.

Not to mention, it turns your fingers green if you handle it for too long...

Not necessarily. If the chains are cheap enough, the links won't be welded shut. You'd just need a pair of needle nose. But that depends on the chain...

The chains look legit as accesories too, I have one wrapped around my tow bar like I would with a real truck (because honestly, I'd be too lazy to put it away....)
