Modeling a Car Tire in 3D Studio Max

There are several tutorials on the web about creating tires and they all use a similar technique in which a small section of the tire is modeled in detail, is duplicated about 50 times and bend. That method allows you to create highly detailed, and high-poly, tires. Another method is using a bump map to for the tire tracks, which is obviously a very low-poly solution. In this video tutorial however, you will learn a fairly quick method to create a fairly detailed tire by using simple extrusion techniques on a cylinder.
