Hi Shapeways fans

Newby here, so please be patient!

I have been 3D modelling in Sketchup and AutoCAD for quite some time now, mostly architectural stuff for visualisation purposes and animations.

I have become quite interested in product design, and making Radio Controlled cars seems like a good project. I would like to make alloy wheels for an off road 1 tenth scale RC... would steel be accurate enough so that it did not produce an eliptical rotation??

Also I have heard that some 3D printers can print rubber like materials, would shapeways be able to print a rubber tyre with a wall thickness of 3mm?

Hope you guys can help.
