Default How to make higher profile tires for your car!

Ok I just was messing around today and I realized that the tires on the cars look a little out of porportion. This is good if you want drag tires, or the realistic look.

Materials: Scissors, 4 Slammed rim tires, super glue, file (optional)

Step 1:

Take your tire and cut it in half *make sure the cut is straight!*




Step 2:

Take the cut tire and wrap it around the rim to see about how much you need to cut.



Step 3:

Cut the tire. Make sure there is a little gap so that the tire is not too loose for the tire so it wont fall out.



Step 4:

Apply superglue to one side of the tire.



Press and hold firmly for about 20 seconds and let sit for about 2 minutes so it sets up good.



Step 5:

Apply a little glue on the out site of tire on the seem where it was glued. Also you might want to do some on the inside for extra strength *do not get superglue on the inside cut out part where the middle lip on the rim goes*




Step 6: Optional

File down the excess glue on the outside if there is any.

Your done! Let the tire sit for a couple minutes then put in your rim. Repeat steps 1-6 for the rest of the tires.


Sorry for the crappy pictures, I had to use a phone.

Finished product:

I guess it depends on your glue. Mine seems fine and I just drove it and its all good.
