#510 Favourite Brick Friday: Rubber treads

This week's favourite brick(s) are the rubber treads; which are still used in LEGO sets but are being used less and less compared to others.



These particular width of treads have a unique connection, because not only do they fit with gears, but 1x2 tiles and grills can attach fairly securely to the treads. This can allow you to include a variety of colours in the design, such as -Mainman- from Flickr's use of the small treads: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mainman/3307427919/in/pool-788191@N24/


Zach on Flickr also uses the rubber treads, but the larger version and attaches 1x2 grills to create a much more interesting texture and grip compared to just the rubber surface:
