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!!
