    The larger the wheel, the less it gets stuck in every little dip and bump in your lawn [​IMG]

    I use lawnmower wheels (they sell 'em at hardware stores for $3-12 each depending on diameter, or you may have old ones around), with sufficiently-long bolts for axle, I think mine are 3/8" diam and have no recollection what length. (With of course appropriate nuts and washers). Works fine for me.

    Have fun,

    Pat

    I wouldn't use one that takes air. Nothing like a chicken with a flat tire.....[​IMG]

    I can see them now running out like a pit crew, pulling the old tire, [​IMG] putting on the new tire... [​IMG] [​IMG] doing little chicken burn outs... [​IMG] sorry got carried away.
