Introduction: DIY Simple LED Bike Tires

A simple way to make your tires light up the night. This can work on bikes, scooters, and mabey even cars. Ok probably not cars since their tires might just send this little array flying and possibly breaking something or hurting someone. Also if you dont have any leds sitting around you can take apart a flashlight for them.

Step 1: Materials

This project will use a varation of the "LED Throwie".

-4 leds(any color)
-2, 3v battaries
-electrical tape
- a bike or another slow moving form of transportstion

Step 2: Dual "Throwies"

Now take 2 LEDs and one battery and attach them with electrical tape. Repeat this for the two remaning LEDs and battery.

Step 3: Attach to Wheel

Now take some duct tape or electrical tape and secure the "dual throwie" to the outer part of the wheel rim. Make shure it is on the outer part of the rim or else centrifugal force will most likely tear the whole thing off or at least bend the LEDs alot. Sorry I forgot to photograph this part up close.

Step 4: Done

Now you have cool light up wheels in under 5min.
