      Start AutoCAD and draw this profile. This will be tyre.

      Medium

    2. Step 2

      Now draw the profile of the rim. Be sure to use polyline. If you used arcs and lines then use PEDIT command to join them.

      Medium

    3. Step 3

      Draw a Construction line along X-axis.

      Medium

    4. Step 4

      Use Revolve command and select the profile for rim.

      Medium

    5. Step 5

      Revolve it about x-axis at 360º.

      Medium

    6. Step 6

      Now we have the Rim body.

      Medium

    7. Step 7

      Again revolve command and select the tyre profile.

      Medium

    8. Step 8

      Revolve it by 8º.

      Medium

    9. Step 9

      Now enter Rotate3D command.

      Medium

    10. Step 10

      Select the tyre part.

      Medium

    11. Step 11

      Along X-axis at -4º.

      Medium

    12. Step 12

      Now draw these entities along the plane view using pline, pedit, rectangle. Any command.

      Medium

    13. Step 13

      Medium

    28. Step 28

      Subtract them too.

      Medium

    29. Step 29

      Rotate the UCS.

    30. Step 30

      Plan>>Current view. Now use Cylinder command.

      Medium

    31. Step 31

      Construct the cylinder.

      Medium

    32. Step 32

      Move it to be symmetrical.
