That should just be the minimum width on the drawing, a lot of manufacturers went for the maximum.

I have used Gibson tyres in the past but if I can get tyres CNC machined the I would design the tyre so that the centre has a more positive location. The fit I can get on an axle is similar to that of a Gibson wheel.

If the tyre is turned with a groove on its inside and the centre is printed with a matching groove in its outside, then the retainer should set as an annulus that both retains the tyre strongly and centres the tyre.
