Details Custom Semi-tractor tires
I changed a little the procedure how I make these special rim/tire-setups.
the first version required that the 2 piece rear-rims are glued together .
Now it's a 3 piece rim and no more glueing required ,
plus the option that you can paint that rim-center to your liking .
the 2 piece wide front rim is glued now .
