I have a rounded rectangle with corner radius that completely covered the sides. See below:

Rounded Rectangle

I want to bend this so it is wrapping a circle. I can't seem to do it without messing with the caps.

I tried making this a brush and apply it to a stroke, here is the result:


Notice the caps are deformed.

Any idea?

You can always expand the stroke if you need to manipulate it as a shape
