Hello folks. Here's some pictures of my 55 chevy... With some real heavy modifications to the body... Hope you enjoy the product of my passion... It's got a full WCM tube frame with slight modifications for the drive train....

New shoes for the 55 chevy. Wheels/ rims almost done... Machining the hubcap now....this is the new wheel and tire package. Don't think any one else has these... Making the scale rims for my 1/4 scale C4 corvette... Hmmmmmm. As I reading thru some threads, some one mentioned why no activity to sharing...... Well... Not for nothing but.... My pics in this thread have over 320 views each......and....... 3 responses ...with all the professional builders here I was sure the critics would be out in full. So I'm guessing that's why...

Nothing to criticize. Everything looks great. Love the tires. Those are excellent. Also smart move on watermarking as we are having problems with another site stealing content. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see the vette.

well Mike..... you can copy any picture now a days with an ipad just by flash photoing the screen.... So, i started slamming the old logo on my pics...:-).... thanx for the compliment.... Tires and wheels are a big part of these cars so I just started re-inventing the 1/4 scale wheels and tires.... Besides, the Good Years work with a couple of cars like the Indys but not for the hot rods... these tires are time consuming and a mess to make. with all that said.... they perform great... And look great. Here's where the C4 Corvette is going...... Sneak peak

How long does it take per tire to do that? Looks pro. Have you tried tread yet?

Well the T is my fat fingers lol

As for how long Mike... 5 hours for the 7 inch rears.... Around 4 for the fronts..... its not something that I would do on a daily bases.... its all in the detail... as for tread... heres a pic of the real tire... i think im going with this tread..... Its a Firestone.... So ill go with this, easy enough. Have some ideals on how to place the Firestone logo on there but that might pe pushing the trade mark thing and all.....lol

glad you like them
