This Bicycle Rides on Car Tires

I’ve always preferred riding mountain bikes to road and hybrid bikes, thanks to their wider and more forgiving tires and suspension systems. I’ve seen some fat tire bikes before, but nothing quite like this. What you’re looking at here is a bike that rides on actual car tires.

This impressive build was created by Instructables contributor Mr-Mash, who started out with an old BMX bike and a pair of car wheels. Through some impressive engineering and welding work, he was able to transform those bits, along with some steel tubing, sprockets, and bike chain into this epic two-wheeler.

The project involved cutting the centers out of the wheels, then fabricating a new hub and spoke structure. It sounds like it was particularly tricky to get the hubs centered. He also had to build some extremely wide forks to hold the wheels.

From the video below, it looks like it takes a bit of effort to pedal, but it’s still quite impressive – and I’m sure the ride is super smooth. To check out the complete build log, head over to Instructables.
