1:8 Scale Wheels in 3d print

Recommended Posts

I did an inventory of the wheels I have made for the 1:8 scale hot rods.  Smaller scales available also.    Showing what I have available for 3d print deep and shallow versions.  Shown here are the deep versions with the top row being front wheels only.

Fine looking work. Sending PM for further info, as selling here isn't allowed.

Tires are needed! Wheels look great, I did get some Halibrand fronts from you and they ARE great!

What's needed in 1/12 are some steelies!

There are those that I'm sure would like to build the 1/12 scale '69 Camaro for instance with those wheels and poverty hubcaps. That would make for an interesting build. I was all over Shapeways website, and not a one makes those. :(

Hi Guys

Been off the boards of late and came across this.  I can take care of this one not a problem.  I take it the wheel looking something like this.  Did the big three all have there own versions of the "Steely and Poverty" setup.  I'm thinking a Camaro version will be slightly to its own design?  Do you guys want the wheel to fit what tire?  No sense in making it so custom that it needs a tire to go along.  If someone could post up the tire dimension I'll build to that spec.

Yes. Me too.

I thought I was alone on this...as I figured somebody would have done 1/12 scale steelies in the history of model building, but, no.

I make them... look through my thread on pro touring and pro street and youll see them.  Originally they belonged to a good friend and i modified them to be a little deeper. One is a 15x7 and the other is a 15x8. I have the caps also.

Thanks Ralph for sharing this. I really do like that staggered look.  This thread got me thinking to make a line of wheels for this kit.  I'm going to initially start with the large size wheel sets.  I'll keep you all posted.

Do you have a store or just here? I like your idea about the wheels but i can tell you from my experience of doing these 1/12 Camaros,  we need more tire options than anything.. the first kits that came out came with 14inch GoodYears and slicks, and the newer Foose kit comes with larger style tires BFG's.. theres really no options out there. If your lucky to find tires from a RC car thats great but you are most lickly alone and hope they fit the wheel you have... so yeah we need tire options..😁

Without getting into trouble....its my logo with a dot com.  Can you guys throw me out a list of tires and options.  Images help too.    I rely on the community for input when it comes to making new stuff.

There are a lot of nice "real" tires available for RC.  I found big-n-littles for my coupe & they look & feel just like the real thing.

I sized them to the car by referencing OD & tread width.

Since I'm going to cut my own wheels, I'm just drawing my prints to match the ID of the tire.

If you're printing wheels, just engineer the software to fit the tire.

Good call!  I took the approach you mentioned and applied it to the muscle machine toy rear tires.  I created these cause I never liked the wheel designs and the front tires were too wide for my tastes.
