Need tire copies made, have master.


Recommended Posts

I am at my end. I am really having trouble with making copies of a tire. I just do not have the equipment (or time) to get them right. I have a master tire that I would be willing to provide if someone else could make the mold and copies. Do you guys have any suggestions for anybody that would do something like this?

Thanks.

Greg Wann at Holy Grail Resin Parts came to my mind. I've seen small lot/custom cast posts on the Holy Grail Facebook page.  Holy Grail Resin has a proboards site if you don't Facebook.

I might be able to help you.  What material is your master tire made from?  Got pics?

Thanks guys!

 

Greg, here is the tire I am working with. It appears to be real rubber from an RC car. It is 1/16 scale. I used it in my `81 Trans Am build. I made a mold and cast a few tires myself, but I had to make a bunch to get 4 good ones and I ended up destroying the mold afterwards. :D
