« Part 4: Side & Back Panels Part 5 of Model Build #2 : The Hummer series Part 6: Details And Bringing It Together! »

Well I spent the whole weekend perfecting the tires or shall I say Tyres for some of you, lol. Anyways, like is said I spent the whole weekend working on the tires. I didn’t expect for the to be so huge but they look freaking cool. I used 1/8” dowels for the lugs.

They are cool J’... however, I will only say this as I did the same (that’s why I have 2 spares on the roof rack)... Did you make 4 right tyres… no get out of jail for free cards if you reply… no… they’re 4 left tyres!

Yeah I kinda messed up. I wasn’t paying attention to tread pattern and all the treads are going the same way. I wanted the treads to point into the center spacer like a V pattern. Oh well.

TIRES mean the steering wheel is on left

TYRES mean the steering wheel is on right

i think what ducky is trying to say is you didnt use the vehicle as center not the actual TIRES

Big tires for one big truck, I was amazed at how big this model is when i built mine.
No problem with the tires just make four more left handers and your ahead on your next heavy duty truck project, you’ll already have the wheels made.
The second set always goes faster as you’ve already got things all figured out.
