Years and years ago a friend gave me an old Ford Model B wheel and tire he found in the woods. I've always wanted a Goodyear tire stand for it, but those are out of my price range. I decided to do what I always do when something I want is out of my reach: I built it myself. I started by making a full scale drawing of one I saw online.

I traced the drawing onto aluminum and cut it out on my band saw.

I have access to a sheet metal brake at work. I bent the sides, and bolted them together.

A few coats of Rust-Oleum's finest, and two reproduction decals

Nice way to display that tire! I especially like your color choice of "Labatt's Blue".

That's no coincidence, as Labatt's Blue was involved durring the construction of this 😉

Nice job on the tire display stand!
Gotta love those wide whitewalls with raised lettering in the white.
