I'm trying to make a tire by starting out with a flat tread pattern and using the bend deformer to create the tire, but I'm having some issues. Here's what I mean:

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. The curvature is set to 3.14 but It ends up looking more like a v than a circle.

Any help would be great. Thanks,

You have to rotate your bendhandle.. that will solve your problem...
