It looks good. Is it your own design? But the inner part of the rim (the center disc that connects to the spokes) seems to be a bit bumpy or you might have some normals problem. Also the tire tread could a little denser.

Its an ok start, needs a bit of detailing in there the spokes dont appear to join to the rim.

It looks a tad lumpy in places, and the material could do with a tweek.
