Wheels are one of the many methods of locomotion. There are currently two types of wheels: Standard Wheels and Steering Wheels. Standard wheels drive the robot forward but cannot steer, while steering wheels both move the craft and steer. They were redesigned in the Wheely Big update from June 1, 2017.
Standard Wheels provide motion for your robot. Even though they do not allow for steering, they are commonly used to keep a robot in balance. The wheels have a maximum speed which, when surpassed, creates a braking force. As the tier of the wheel increases, all stats increase as well.
Steering wheels provide motion for your robot as well as steering. The wheels have a maximum speed which, when surpassed, creates a braking force. As the tier of the wheel increases, all stats increase as well.
Wheels are the easiest and cheapest propulsion method to use on your robot and are more stable and faster than Hover Blades. As such it is recommended that new players start out with wheeled robots.
Adding steering wheels at the front and the back of the craft causes the craft to turn quicker.
On smaller wheeled craft, oversteering can cause a big problem if all of your wheels are steering wheels. The opposite can be said about very large wheeled craft. A solution to this is to add fewer or more steering wheels respectively, to increase/decrease turning speed to a suitable level.
Electroplates placed on the front of a craft can also clip against the ground, causing you to get caught on terrain. Moving the plate upwards one or two blocks generally fixes it.
