It's pretty obvious what this is, but can you tell what it is from?

It appears to be the wheel cover on a model or toy car. The tire is Bridgestone but I don't know the car. Perhaps a Jaguar.

The white balance seems to be off a bit in this shot. I am wondering if you were using incandescent lighting and had WB set for sun?

Your right about the model car and tire make, but not the car make. (keep guessing):blah:

I had trouble with the color on this one, I used auto WB and just light from a ceiling lamp. I am new to this macro/indoor shooting thing so any help will be appreciated.

If your camera has a way to manually set the white balance, put a white piece of paper in front of the car and use that to set the white balance. Check your manual for the procedure.
