You're thinking to small, go back and look at what the wheel was and what it was used for, what was it made out of? Im pretty sure we arnt running horse and buggies with wooden skinny wheels, Are we?

Wheels have been designed, patented, manufactured and sold for everything from Boeing 747's, buses, forklifts, RC cars and shopping carts.

The materials range from steel, aluminium, magnesium, plastic, rubber and more.

You're not a materials engineer and you're not the go-to person in an R&D project.

You have no clue on material or manufacturing costs let alone the pros and cons of each respective material and application.

The fact that you came to this forum for guidance says the most.

The fact that you came to this forum for guidance says the most
