Wheels For The Servo

Hi, I have been searching for about 2 weeks some wheels for my modified servos, Because the ones that the kit includes are very little. I was thinking of something between 2 and 5 inches of diameter.

Does someone know where I could get some?

You can use a servo horn to mount any wheels. A dab of hot glue on the horn will hold the wheel in position.

I've looked at Pololu but i think the international shipping rates always deterred me from ordering.

@Diego, Unfortunately the tamiya wheels you chose don't have a splined hub for a servo but rather a 'D' shaft for DC gear motors. You may have a hard time interfacing the 2 together, unless you use something like epoxy putty but even then the wheels might not spin true. The only wheels on the market (that I'm aware of) that are designed for continuous rotation servos are from Pololu, EZ-Robot, & Solarbotics. (Robotshop is a reseller of all 3).

Hello again Diego, unfortunately those have the D style hub as well so you'll run into the same issue, you'll want some wheels from
This section

Turns out lynx motion and Hi tec have some available too, never knew.

Also look at ServoCity. They have a good selection of wheels and hubs. This is my favorite site of all.
