Awesome michelin tire and highly re-usable for your projects like pro cg cars rendering, this will add a lot of realism to your scene.
Rendering scene include (corona 1.5).
Took me weeks to do it accurately.
This version 2 of the tire come in 1 size, tread & sidewall.
The sidewall is now curved for better reflections, i added the studio lighting used for rendering and the complex tire shader (corona render) with my 4k texture (can be used on any tire & rounded corners shader recommended for the letters).
Files are saved for max 2014 for best compatibility with the Texture folder, check the previews images for the wire.
It's 100% 3D (the array effects from the tire design work well compared to texture), the tire tread is separated from the sidewall for easily tweak the width.
