The tire tread “Defined, and Refined” was the challenge with this ring design.
Tire treads have such great patterns, and they can end up wasted as just a surface pattern on a ring. I wanted the ring to BE the tire tread. By the way it was designed, I wanted to give it some life, some style- the feel of high performance. As I worked the design, the different parts fell into place, and the resulting design is among my favorites.
