Fantastic 4
20th Century Fox

Objects that appear in the film were carefully constructed to represent reality.

The creation of objects such as tires had inherent limitations that could only be overcome by creating deceptively similar replacement objects. These scenic replacements required that the object be made of an alternate material. A mould of the real object was made from fiberglass or rubber.

This process allowed the objects to look real to the camera, yet allowed them to be manipulated in ways that would otherwise be impossible in reality.
