   Rover Wheels
    Wheel Types

While LEGO® ’s official range of Wheels fits most ‘Earth’ applications, the unique requirement of Rover wheels doesn’t leave us with many LEGO® options. My aim was to develop a range of interchangeable Rover wheels, implemented in LEGO® which could be used on my Yogi series of Rovers. From this investigation into wheel construction, performance requirements, and ‘playability’, came this series of 11 Rover Wheels.

Each wheel type has its own unique construction, application, and all can be personalized with individual tread and cleat designs. These wheels represent starting points from which specific wheels can be developed. Enjoy.


LEGO® wheel and tyre combos are for the most part ‘Earth centric’, in that each wheel is comprised of a matching hub and tyre – just like your family car. Most LEGO® Technic wheels have a diameter ranging between 30mm and 80mm (with a few notable exceptions sitting outside each extreme).These Rover wheels have an average diameter of 120mm with larger diameters available.
