If you look carefully at all the pictures, you will see that he's simply making use of the natural flexibility (and stretchiness) of the rubber of the part. So the outer tread becomes sidewalls, while the inner tread becomes the entire tread.

Hi Chris,

No...I didn´t use the original dat file in this way, but oriented me to its proportions.

OK - I understand now. This can be submitted as 6578c01.dat, with a description something like 'Tyre 14/ 36 x 20 VR (Deformed to XX/YYY x 20)', where XX and YYY are the new width (in mm) and new profile as a %age of the width. Any subparts should be named 6578c01s01.dat,  6578c01s02.dat, etc.

I suggest that the tires are submitted along with the wheel it was fitted around, say "2470 - Wheel Wagon Small (27mm D.)" to make it clear how it was deformed.
