Wheel Making 2"

Sure I did not see your post or I would have responded sooner.

The wheels were made Using PVC pipe then grooved the rim for the tire.

Wrapping paper around the PVC rim gave the exact circumference, then divided into equal sections for the spoke holes

The hubs were made from brass tube and washers
Spokes - Heavy Carpet Thread Ca soaked
Tires were made using round window weatherstripping abit over sized for that scale, so I tried some "craft foam sheets" and laminated them and sliced off a strip and glued it to form the tires.

If you have any Questions I will try to answer them
