Two of the latest version of the rims printed, two to go.  

I'm printing them with my 'normal' formula for stronger PLA parts.  Some of this applies to most filament types, but not all.

In other news, @Emil Novak has since printed a version of this for a local contest he's interested in, and tried it out.  

I'm not sure about his choice of tire aspect ratio as that caused issues for me, but it's certainly a start.  :)

He also has plans for trying out zip-ties as the tire material which he will probably get to faster than I can.

Waiting to see how that turns out, and as promised (if he's old enough), has been invited to the project.
