Here is a little project i started since foam tyres is hard to get.
So i made them.
I cut out the centre of 4 grp mr 02 wheels and milled a aluminium centre that
fit my awd.

Nice! Way to create your own solution. Going to sell any?

Nice milling work!

But the title of your thread leads one to believe that you made your own tires. Did you, or did you just use existing mounted foams and make a new center hub for the wheels?

Nice milling job on the wheels... love the look... do you happen to have a weight for them?... also if you really wanna set them apart you can buy foam donuts from TMA Marketing
