Hi,

You could use the Array modifier.

If you want to use a modifier, the array modifier can do this.
Just use an Empty and the Object Offset.
The Center of your object and the Empty should be at the Midpoint of the tire.
Type the name of the Empty in the Object Offset Box of the modifier and rotate the Empty.

Another way is the Spin, SpinDup or Extrude Dup Tool in the EditButtons.
