Here are two of the twenty road wheels mounted on their axle. The wheels are 5 " by 1 3/8" in size which works out great for a T34 in 1/6 scale.

Since this design I came up with doesn't allow for easy removal of individual wheels at a time. I pre-drilled these holes in each wheel hub for future oiling if required. As is without oil, the nylon hub wheels turn really well on the axles.

Almost ready to go Tiger hunting!

The idler and drive wheels on T5 are glued up disks of plywood. Here's the jig I use to cut circles on my bandsaw.
