It looks nice and an "intentional" design, i.e., doesn't look like a truck wheel.

What size is the rim?

Them thin/"tin" fire pits rust out so easily
...this one should last awhile


It's for a 19.5" tire
...but, measures ~20" across
& ~10" deep

Outstanding!

Don't put it too close to plants and flowers you want to keep. You can scorch them to death just from the evil high temperature heat waves. Don't ask me how I know....

I wanted to do this as my college welding project, but was going to add a cooking rack to it. Though the rim I thought we had was gone. Glad I'm not the only one who wanted to make one.
