    Motorcycle Rim and Tire " beginner question"

      I am trying to model a motorcycle tire and rim as learning project.  I have been able to convert and wheel blank DWG drawing to a 3d object and

      guessestmated a tire but still need more help.

       

      Is it better to use the revolved base/boss or the sweep base/boss to draw the rim and tire?

       

      How do i move the front,top and right planes to my drawing centerline? do I need to do that?

       

      Should I move the orgin to a point on the wheel centerline? How do I do that?

       

      When I try to letter the side of tire I cant seem to select the side wall I can letter on one of the planes but the the lettering is not on the side wall.

       

      I atttached the drawing if you want to look at it.

       

      The rim blank is a 17x6.5 for a 190 tire

       

      Were can i get a drawing or cutaway of a motorcycle tire?

       

      thanks
