SetVehicleWheelScale

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki

BETA: FROM VERSION 1.5.7 r20642 ONWARDS
This function sets the scale of all the wheels of a vehicle. The wheel scale multiplies the visible height and length (but not width) of all the wheels in a vehicle, without affecting their collisions or the handling, similarly to setVehicleComponentScale. The wheel scale is applied after the model wheel size.
[[{{{image}}}|link=]] Note: Installing or removing a wheel upgrade from a vehicle resets the wheel scale to the default value.
[[{{{image}}}|link=]] Tip: The default value for vehicles without wheel upgrades is 1, which renders the wheels in the model as usual. On the other hand, the default value for vehicles with a wheel upgrade is the size of the wheels in the front axle of the vehicle model.

Preview of the results of invoking the shrinkwheels command

This example adds a shrinkwheels command that reduces the wheel scale of a vehicle in half each time it is invoked.

addCommandHandler("shrinkwheels", function()
    local veh = getPedOccupiedVehicle(localPlayer)
    if veh then
        local newScale = getVehicleWheelScale(veh) * 0.5
        setVehicleWheelScale(veh, newScale)
        outputChatBox("Vehicle wheel scale set to " .. newScale .. ".", 0, 255, 0)
    else
        outputChatBox("You must be in a vehicle to use this command.", 255, 0, 0)
    end
end)
