    Plastic Wheels

    I am trying to make a push toy for a friend's 1-year old. I need to put some wheels on the bottom.

    I found some casters that I can put on the bottom but I was thinking it would be better to have little tires so that it would push straight.

    I can't seem to find any kind of tires that would be suitable. i have seen some but they are $8 each and I was trying to keep it down to $8 for all 4 tires. Any ideas on where to look or what kind of tire to get?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Don't know if this is what you are looking for but Rockler has these for $5 to $6 for a set of four:

    I've used them on some toys.

    I'd look for a lawnmower to get wheels for something like that. I wish every day was heavy trash day.
