Hi all,  I have a student at my school (A2) who is currently making a 1:12 supercar for jaguar.  We have decided on 3D printing the rims but cannot find a supplier for the tyres.  Can anyone help with either a UK based supplier or who have a set for sale.  To be honest we only need two, 1 front and 1 back. Long story!

Thank you guys (and girls, if any)

Steve

This will be hard.. I think the easiest sollution is to do a 3D print of tyres.. I have a few printed tyres and they are not bad at all

3d print the tires and then make a silicone mold of them, then cast the tires in liquid rubber / black dye

A lot of messing around but the result will be worth it over black plastic
