What size tires . I just may not stop with lures . Tires are made of high temp nitrile composites . In its raw form the stuff is stretchy and can be formed . If you exceed the temp and pressure range the stuff becomes a hard plastic like one of those old ash trays you used to see in the barber shops.

I remember a striper lure (no longer in production) that was a hit with the lunker hunters in SoCal. early on before the good trout immitations hit the market, it was the Worm King Dinosaur and it was 12" long.

Default heads for plastic

This is my favorite head to use for Plastic swim baits . Poured these up to show . 4oz down to 1/4 oz . I'll cut part of the end of a bait to fit the head angle.
