So what's the actual size? And would you please post a little about how you cut the 'tread' in the wheels? TIA

The truck is about 12 inches long X 6 inches tall and 7 inches wide.
The tires are made in two pieces. I used a router table with a 1/4 inch straight bit using a miter gauge and a jig I made. I cut each 1/2 one at a time then glued them together. I have made them on a bandsaw with the table tilted and a tablesaw with the same jig I used on the router table.
