Hey, I recognize that tire! Great idea, I hope it becomes mainstream.
Anyway, it looks like your spokes (for lack of better word) and outer ring are not connected. Are they molded together in reality? If so, you are going to want to go back and remove the tiny gap that exists between the spokes and outer ring. If they are supposed to be separate entities, then you probably want to try a Component Contact for that outer tire (so you don't have to set the individual supports). But the problem still remains that they are not actually touching. I am not sure if it is in Component Contact or Contact Pair that you can set "Ignore small gaps" or something like that to get around changing your supports, but i would make the supports actually touch the tire.
Thanks for the reply.
In the end I fixed the problem by remodeling that section of thecomponent as a solid ring, and then using various cut-extrudes toget the shape that I wanted, as shown here.
I used a bonded contact gap between the "tire" andspokes, and another one between the spokes and hub.
