Just divide the number by 18 if you want 1/18 scale.

SO 16/18 = 0.888888888888888 of an inch.

Im sure they can. If it was 18inch rims then the scale wheel be 1inch.
Its not that small I dont think.

I'm fairly sure that getting the wheels 3D printed will cost a LOT more than these wheels! Don't forget someone has to spend time to create the 3D image first and that might take several hours alone...

Custom Diecast, Just DO IT!

Thats why if you are paying the guy to set everything up get a few sets made so you can recoup some money back by selling them.

In order to have a smooth and good finish, the printing technology is at the base of everything. A FDM or SLS technology are not the correct ones if you are looking for a good result. The best solution is a SLA printer.
I have already designed and printed those spoon rims and in correct 16" size scaled to 1:18 according to the slight adjustments that model manufacturers do, it is very common that manufacturers increase the measure of the rims, take Kyosho M3 that has rims of 30mm of diameter that means 21.2" in real life instead of 18" standard and 19" option
