Suggestions. An increment in vertex density and use extrude. The image above is an exaggeration of your subtle situation. Model progression.

Top Ortho.

  • Loop Cuts.
  • Delete Vertices and faces.
  • Shape the hole manually, or with Proportional edit in Edit Mode, or with Loop Tools which is an addon.
  • Extrusion marked by arrow and difficult to see

User Persp

  • Extrusion allowing flexible shaping. You are vents are somewhat like eyelids. They need less height. Add more loop cuts and shape subtly.

Still exaggerated for readability. Image above. You can be more artistic with technical improvements. This is an isolated modeling suggestion. You can see models of hand and eyes to see how many loop cuts can be reused and reduced.

  • $\begingroup$ But if I increment the density It will be more dificult to control the circular shape where the tire go into don't you think ? or I'm worng ? $\endgroup$ – Christian William May 3 '16 at 16:54
  • $\begingroup$ If you need a circular shape. See the loop tools comment. Also there are n-gons on which you can seek more opinions. $\endgroup$ – atomicbezierslinger May 3 '16 at 17:04
