Hi, My hobby is Tires & Wheels

Pleased to find this site. Have had some minor problems getting things posted, maybe this time, we will see. This is Marty From Tulsa and I love hot cars, hot trucks, anything that is hot and fast. My hobby is working with tires and wheels. Most tires are black, but have beautiful designs and logos molded in the sidewall and we have noticed that work much, have we? I'm bringing out all that design and molding effort to show you that you can have beautiful tires and custom wheels that add personality and attitude to your rides. I'll try again, to post some pics so you can see my points. Now, the colors and designs may not be to your personal liking, but the point is to show you what can be done.

I have a trophy winning Cobra and many have your own trophy winners so, no big deal right? Anyway, the tires and wheels are of course "point-winners," at judged events so, why not add some beauty to them.

That is it for now, i'll try for the pictures.

I read the business guidelines

I understand your comment. I'm not selling, i'm trying to show what can be done. If there is a line that I have crossed, let me know and I will leave, don't mean to cause a problem, at all. I've tried to proof read and used the spell check, guess I've missed something? I've had a problem getting the right size of pics. So, where is my problem? If, you feel I should be in the business area, I'll go there, just let me know what you think, I'm a guest in your house and know it.

Thank You

As long as you're not selling you're in the right place. When it comes to pics.... if you're camera is a high pixel one then you'll need to shrink the pics down to about 640x480 in order to upload them.

Thanks for the image specs help.

I went back and read the business guidelines again. I can only see that my name Hobbytires would sound like a business and understand the flag you saw. Of course, any name using tires would sound like a business, I could just go by Marty.

I think I understand the rules and if I should stray, I'll expect you to not be shy and let me know.

Thanks again

Interesting take on dressing up tires. Probably would appeal more to the "Tuner" crowd than any other segment of the hobby.

Thats a good Idea But does doing that to your tires automatically turn your car into a chick magnet or is it something else .

I've Never Had A Woman Walk Away From My Tires

Chicks do love it! It affects chicks like their lip stick affects men, except you can't lick it off. Picture two, glossy, black GT-500s, one with black tires (I'm not against black tires either} the other, with Hot Iron Red on the tire design and logo. This chick/s {they like to travel in pairs as you know,}, sees and is drawn to your car, she senses something about automotive "heat," that she has never felt before, but she can see it and wants to get close to it. As she ambers closer for a better look at the beautiful tires that caught her attention, well, partner, you are own you're own, just defend yourself to the best of your manly ability.

Good Luck, only the strong survive.

There Is A Car In The First Pic?

Hi,

Yes, the car is my Mystic Cobra and she is in the pictures as a "part," of my effort to provide some idea of how my tires/wheels look on a car. Some of the wheels are stock and some I have redone. All the tires have been color enhanced and if you have not, click the picture for a larger view of the tires. Some of the car pics were taken at The Tulsa ExPo car show in July 2007. Some of the other pics are of just tires and wheels. I just tried to present a "package," image of tire, wheels and a view of how the look on a car.

Some people prefer a different color which is not a problem, but I have to start somewhere. There are more pictures in my album. Some people have commented on the "Black Wheels," actually, they are black only because its a {primer shot," prior to the addition of color. I was trying to show some of the mechanics behind the final work. They all, tires and wheels, do add a lot to trucks, jeeps, muscle cars, airplane tires, motor cycle tires are done on both sides, boat trailers, horse trailers and you can go from there.

I hope this clears up the confusion and thank you for your comments.

Kevin
Kevin45 (Hope i'm messaging correctly.} I don't have any black wheels. I think you are referring to the wheel/s that have just had primer added and not colored, yet. I was just giving a little indication of how I do some of the work. Actually, doing a wheel is difficult as I use multiple colors most of the time. The wheel windows or spokes, whatever the wheel design is, dictates the amount of work involved.

The whole idea is to add personality and more beauty to the common tire and to add more artistic touches to wheels. Some people like the black tires and that is fine with me. I just enjoy bringing those sidewall designs to life. Some sidewalls have Eagles, Hawks, Cobras and so forth in the mold and color really makes a difference to the tire, the wheel and the car.

Thanks for your comment Kevin45.
