How to add more then 6 wheels to a car

in this tutorial i will explain you how to add 10 custom wheels to a car,

so this is the reason i am using Rhino of SA because it looks grate with 10 wheels,

this tutorial is for Vice city, but we can use this method in GTA III also,

Good luck,


Things you will need

Basic knowledge

before you read you should have basic knowledge

of vehicle modeling, if you don't have then try to open any vehicle

do some little changes & export in vice city,

by repeating this you can learn fast


3d Modeling Software

3ds Max 9 (Recommended)




A Vehicle

that will looks good with 8 or 10 wheels,

for example Bus, Tank, Big & long trucks, etc.

anyways i am using this for Trains in My GTA Vice city Unbelievable TC




open your selected Vehicle in your Modeling software,
