Not An Ordinary Tire


A little while ago I was asked by a fellow student about the best way to make a tire in SolidWorks, so I gave her some ideas on how to do it and went on with my day.  Later on I was thinking about what I had said and decided to make one of my own.  This is what I came up with.  I used some linked values in order to create the treads as well as a number of circular patterns.  Enjoy.
