I finally got the tires into the container. 163 tires to be exact. Thanks to all my fellow modelers from around the world who donated most of the tires.
I also added the twist locks to the underside at all four corners of the container to hold them in place. I made some few changes of the placement of the wheels and did some minor painting and slight weathering. I also moved the tractor slightly forward away from the trailer to show more of the fifth wheel.

So I hope you all approve of the final look as I am calling this done.

it's had a hard life, lol. you've got a good eye for detail. you always seem to do what looks realistic.

i'm so glad the modelling community helped you out with the tires.

Added a net to cover the container to prevent tyres from falling off:
