Copy the model 16 times, or however many times you need to make the treading you want. Then weld all the points that connect to turn it from 16 pieces to 1 mesh - all connected (Fig.08).

Mirror the model over, weld the middle points, and then remove the middle edge (Fig.09).

Pull out the edges so that we can deform them outside later (Fig.11).

Apply an FFD modifier box, set it to 5x5x5 and scale in the edges (Fig.12).

Extrude the edges in and chamfer the edges by 3 to get a smooth transition (Fig.14).

Just place the rim - and there you go! (Fig.15)
