Started off with some turned alloy rims.


Found a suitable size wheel and cut the spokes out.


For the 'rubber band' tyre I turned the tyre inside out to cut the centre strip away.


The finished examples,the band tyre is a great fit and the other one is from a big rig trailer and also fits nicely.
It was just an experiment and goofball time!!
