What I did to get a good feel for paths, was to make a box using four points and dragging the sides to make it a circle out of it. It's fun to make crazy curved paths, too.

Amazing PM. I like the texture you have in the tyre :)

Unfortunately I cannot get past the first airbrush step. It doesn't look correct.
I have tried the bump map step but it still isn't looking right. Specially if I am to have a plain area outside and inside the tyre. It's not happening for me :(

Looks like I am the only one having trouble. Have tried 4 times unsuccessfully now.

Thank you Photomaster, great technique for getting the rubber Tyre effect. I think I get what you mean sallyanne, I'm going to have another play to get some smooth radial strips.

I think I got the paths down pretty well now. Here's a modified version as a Drag Slick....

Sorry didn't see your reply yesterday (I will try it again and if it comes out the same I will post the xcf so you can see)

Cool name OMG!

Only thing I did different yesterday was I saw the 15% as 18% (85% I saw correctly) so put the guides in the wrong place. [The airbrushing was either filling the whole image and leaving just the corners.]
I have finally done a simple tyre - no background. I didn't run the 3D bevel on it either as I cannot find it in gimp. I have installed it twice. I never have trouble with installing scripts and finding them :(
