i'm thinking you're gonna wanna use something that looks more like an Ice Climbers boots, instead of tires. Its a shame those are nice tires.

Reminds me a bit of the Tank from "Aliens", someone is actually modeling that in the WIP forum.

I think I will add spikes to the tire, to make them a bit more applicable to the enviroment.

They were made (very easily i might add) by taking a nurbs sphere, shaping it like the tire. Then i took the centre control points and rotated them along the axle. Then converted to poly's, and extruded the treads. Then a smooth.

Heres a small update.

If its ice climate, it might be cool to add some spike to the tyres for a look.

Made a tire, it's a bit more suited for cold climate i think.

what do you think?

I'd be great to drive in snow on them. Perhaps where the black parts join the grey parts (technical terms there) you could put a circular rim to give the impression of increased strength?
