Lightbulb HOW TO CREATE SOME WIDE-BRIMMED WHEELS.. PICS. .(different than RYAN GIORGIO).

Hi everybody.....,

This is a second solution ( first was by RYAN GIOGIO) to have some nice wide-brimmed wheels.....

Also, doing like this, we win one size more large.(18''.......19")

First, in a styren plastic i have made some wheel tyre, join with some putty...


I fixed with glue on the original wheel (2 differents kinds)...



I removed the rear circle of the wheels (circle in blue)...


After sanding and sanding, the wheels are ready for painting...


A small touch of primer paint....



Wheels are painted with chrome spray...


Now, the tires on the wheels (2 kinds of rims)....



Pics more larges....
Rear wheel: more wide than the front wheel....



The original wheel in blue...


The same original wheel in black....


On the rear car.......
At the begining...


The new rims.... nice wide-brimmed wheel.....




I hope that you will think a good solution to transform your all wheels.....
Laurent from FRANCE.....

Wow!!! Very nice!!! I have a question though. What do you do about the increase diameter of the wheel as compared to the tire. Dont you have problems getting the tires on after making the wheels larger around? :alien:
