Robot wheels advice needed

Hi, does anyone know any suppliers that sell wheels for robotic projects. I need 2 wheels with a diameter of 116mm and roughly 2 inch wide.

If you need a wheel of that specific diameter you might have to fabricate it yourself. Find a rubber tread the right width, perhaps from an old bicycle tire. Cut a disk of wood the right diameter and several rings of wood the same diameter to get the desired width. Glue the rubber tread to the outside diameter.

I would imagine there are plenty of places, the three that I've bought from include:

Other places I've bookmarked, but I have not yet bought from include:

thats excellent, thanks guys :D

The dimensions you have given are almost exactly the same as RC Rock Crawler tyres, these are generally high performance - i.e. expensive. They are made from soft grippy rubber if thats what your looking for -

They are sold separately from the wheels, the wheels on rc4wd are aluminium beadlocks - great for models, way too expensive for robots. You can get plastic ones for about 10 usd for four.
