Settings for the tire material are on the left

Here is a closeup of the large tire on the tractor. Notice the nice subtle highlights/reflections. This is a combination of the material settings and the HDRI reflections.

- Reflections have been set to a dark grey
- Reflection glossies have been lowered to .75
- Fresnel reflections were enabled and Index of Refraction (IOR) was set to 1.6
- Max depth was raised to 8
- All other settings were left default.

Since I knew the camera wasn't going to get to close to certain things I was able to get away with just mapping a few things in the scene.

- The headlights and grill are simply textures mapped to the geometry.
- For the hoses I used renderable splines.
