Default Homemade wheels

Just wondering if you guys ever made any homemade wheels for you crawler. I want to make some 2.2's and just seeing if you guys have any ideas.

I've got a bunch of files saved to 3d print some wheels. Without a printer or lathe I think you're SOL.

depending on what you want to do. I have taken axial 2.2 wheels cut the bead portion off of them. Then asked MThead to make new rings that have the SLW mounting holes on them. I use aluminum spacers to make the wheel as wide or as narrow as I would like. Now granted they arnt the scalest looking wheels but they dont look to bad either.
