Greg thats a funky mold. Can you share how you made it that way? I dont see any mold lines or pour/vent holes? Looks like you made a mold of the inside of the tire and then a mold of the entire tire encased in silicone? Curious to hear how you did it. Thanks.

Take the above link over to a forum that I show a lot of my casting work on. You will want to go to page two for the tire mold making. Most of page one are pictures of a Mercedes W196 Race car being taken apart. The mold I make is pretty simple and straight forward. I would suggest that you buy some of the Kleen Klay I use to clay up parts. The best deal for that is from Allumilite. Kleen Klay is to Resin casting as The Force is to Star Wars!! "LUKE, USE THE CLAY, LUKE"!
I do pretty much Encapsulate the entire tire in silicone. This mold will make some great tires when I have good resin to work with. As you will see when you go over to my light side of casting that when they put an expiration date on a can the stuff knows when to go bad!! YUP! These guys have expiration dates down to a science too. LOL The one thing about my mold is that the tires are not easy to remove. Be prepared for some excercise. Some of you guys making tires are just trying way too hard.
So....Check out my work and cruise around our forum. You can see and join for free. We are the guys that bring the Desert Scale Classic Model Car contest to life at the good Ol" Postal Hall every year and it's coming up in April in the Phoenix, AZ area. I'm sure Danno will post a fler soon. Enjoy and have fun. It's not just a forum to waste time at. Hopefully you will learn something about resin casting. Well......It's my take on the subject.

Greg, I've been experimenting with resin for about 2 years now and have done pretty well with it but tires have been hit or miss with me. Thanks for sharing that link. Very interesting stuff in there.

And not to hijack Franks thread, your stuff looks really nice too. Tires are looking good. Very informative post on so many levels. Thanks guys.

OOPS! I too apologize for seemingly hijacking this thread. I am certainly not here to try to outdo anybody about this. I have been posting my resin work for some time now on our forum. Jeff Watlington the Time Machine Bandit guy was pretty helpful but a lot of what I show is what I dreamed up on my own. If I had a big Ego, I would say it was top secret and I would not post anything.

I got my set of muscle car tires from Frank.

They were cast in the tan resin, and they are really good. no air bubbles whatsoever

A little cleanup, sanded off the pour stubs, cleaned up the relese agent, and voila, ready for primer and paint

good stuff :)

Cheers, Ian

Frank, ever consider doing the MRC Muscle Car tires? Ya can't buy the things anywhere anymore, so the market's wide open. I'd love to have a couple more sets of Firestone Wide Ovals for my pre-radial cars. Admittedly, they could use a little reshaping etc, but nothing you couldn't handle. I bet we'd all like to have the Mickey Thompsons too, but the way MRC did the sidewall lettering is so bad it detracts from the model. I have no idea what it would take to fix that, but if you did, you'd have buyers. Just a thought...

Would anyone want to cast me some 16.00x20.00 54" Michelin XZL military style tires? (unless someone knows who makes a et in 1:24 and a set of kustom 20 inch dually wheels (8 for a rig with 10 bolt wheels) I got the design and all. Or tell me a good video for casting wheels and tires so I can do my own.
