I like it! But it would be neat if they folded up!

KSP really does need retractable rover wheels.

To other modders: Feel free to include my mod in any of your mod packs , mentioning that it's mine.

I won't make many mods and I don't think I'll ever have a pack of parts so if you think this one fits with your pack you can just include it, so it gets a broader audience.

I like it, haven't tried it yet but looks better than stock wheels.

Downloading right now! Looks nice! Hard to find nice wheels that go with the "stock" feel of the game!

I'd like it a bit more if the copper was aged/dinged slightly, but those are still very nice wheels. Good work!

I made an update to the wheels, now the wheel cover has extra details (through normal map) including fine imperfections. They still look brand new. It's not like Jeb made them.

That's what Infernal Robotics is for! ;)

On a more serious note' date=' these wheels are awesome, added that final touch to my LRV replacing the stock wheels. Time for some RSS moon missions!

Very nice LRV there, but I made an update to the wheels, you should try the new update. It added some details to the wheel cover and the rim.

Bumping, as it's ridiculous that what is probably the best-looking wheel ever made for KSP is so overlooked.

Thanks, I appreciate your feedback. I am working on something bigger this vacation.. but soon college will start and I won't have time most probably. I am working on a full Lunar Roving Vehicle. Here is a render I made with Blender:

Yes that's just the new wheels which are a bit lower and have a bit more detail. A normal map from a higher poly model would probably be suited well with the Wheel cover.

One day I'll finish this pack. I hope I will be the first to do the LRV idea, but if not, I'll know it will be something I'm happy with.

Nice! Any video of how it handles?

I'll try and make one for you, but tomorrow, it's getting late here.

Recent unfortunate events also steal my time these days and I can't really promise you anything, except that I'll try.

Perhaps we could avoid necroing ancient threads by checking most recent post date.
