    I decided to play with the old rims that have been around forever, I don't remember who they belong to originaly. Anyway I gave the cutouts some depth and altered the rim a little to have something different. tire map credit goes to DERacing.

    Just to be clear, the rim on the right is my edited version. :D

    I use a cross between Jeff Yosts original wheels, with some add'l details from Janimox, CBCTech and some others.

    Been using this set for years. I'll update some of the maps every now and then...

    Gone backwards lol....remapped this from scratch with a 1024x1024 uvw map.
    aero decals from DERacing. I think 1024 is high enough for rims. Also has my tire valve added.

    Toss this in your BUMP map slot and crank it up a bit and see what happens. One of these should fit.

    Gotta get some detail in the cutout parts.

    thanks bud...sorry they did not line up but that is more from me extruding the cutouts I think.
    So I had a try at making one. I think for what scenes I do, this will be ok. Thanks for the advice and files.

    BINGO! We have a winner. My only other suggestion is to cut the thickness down. The Aero's are basically a stamped sheetmetal wheel. Cut your thickness down to about 1/2-1/4 of what you have now and I think you'll have it nailed.

    Damn... your on to something there.

    Have you added any smooth modifiers to it yet to help smooth out the cutouts at all yet?

    I have now. turbosmoothed the cutout area, and outer rim. I think the bumpmap is a little too messy and is upsetting the cutouts. I have kids to take to school soon, I will send you the PSD and Max files after I get back. This is in Max9 and CS6.

    Thanks for all the help (y)
