Theyre about 11.5cm in diameter - bigger than I expected and if you're like me and only have a 500g spool of TPU, it won't be enough. Hopefully these guys work as their production cost/time is getting pretty high.

What is the outer diameter & width of a tire?

Any chance you can redo these for a 1/18th scale rc?

Hey man the wheels look great! one question for you though. what software do you use? I'm looking to get into making R/C wheels and other R/C parts as a hobby because they dont make some of the parts i want anymore.
watched some of your youtube video reviews, i think they were yours at least. Waiting on a really good deal on the CR10 or CR10s

He is using Fusion360.

hey man love the videos and a friend asked me to print these but im having problems with the 12mm nut not being solid. multiple print settings and the nut holder keeps breaking out leaving the spokes and no nut holder =\

same thing happening here.

did u finish the rim? for some reason cura isnt printing the spokes just outer and inner rim nothing joining them together

going to print these for my traxxas summit. and was wondering what u mean by 5 perimeters. im using a .8mm nozzle at .4 layer hight. should i make the walls 5x .8mm? I will be using my saber tooth trimmer line for the tire, and petg for rim. also u should make one for 22mm hub to fit the 1/5 trucks would love to try these on my losi 5t in sand not water. thanks for all the vids u have helped me on multiple times

If you are using a 0.8mm nozzle you will have an extrusion width >0.8mm, that means that you only need half the number of perimeters since I was using a 0.4mm nozzle. Use 3 perimeters and you will have firm and rubbery tires. Good luck!

thank you, awesome video
