I'm trying to come up with a new logo for my tireshop, and I'm trying to create a tire in Photoshop. I really like the outline of this one: example

How is a circle outline like this created? I know how to create a star with flat corners, but that just don't cut it. How can i make a custom circle outline?

Personally i would create the tire pattern in illustrator and import as a smart object.

If the pattern you have it what you want try just using the magic wand to select the white/grey part. then press Q to go into quick mask and use the brush tool to paint the mask. once you have the mask the way you want save as a path. there are many ways to get it done I would just use what you found and like to start.
