simpledeform modifire


I made a tire and a rim, and try to bend it using simple deform modifier. I get this what is on image. It’s collapsing not bending around rim. Any idea how fix this?

Thanks for help.

You need to orientate the local Z axis correctly to get your object to bend how you want.
The attached image shows the same object with the same bend modifier, only the axis is different (blend file attached)

Rotating you object in EDIT mode 90 degrees and then back -90 degrees in OBJECT mode allows you to move the local axis
