Sew two of these together to have a 3D effect on the tires and attach to the hat. Use gray yarn for the “mags” design

Note:
For a larger size: You can increase the number of dc in * after round 9 until you arrived the desired hat/head circumference size before doing round 10.

For a smaller size: Once you reach the desired head circumference you may skip some rounds then proceed to round 10.
