Featherweight Wheels?

Hello everyone, I'm making a featherweight that needs bigger wheels then the red Bunnings wheels. They need to be around 125mm, but also need to be very affordable. Thanks Jayden Very Happy

You will need a tap to cut the thread as the plastic is harder than the red wheels.

Have a look here: http://www.richmondau.com/product-category/wheels-rollers/ I think this place makes the red wheels for Bunnings and they do many other styles.

Also thanks it seems that the size I'm look for isn't here, but some wheels will be used in other robots Smile
