I've never dealt with wheels before.I'm trying to make the wheels of a vehicle appear as though they're moving. What would be the best way to do this?

Thanks!!! :shrug:

Hi.... maybe try it using set driven keys....
or an expression to control the rotation of the wheel

I have not tried this, but rather than do it with expressions, I might try and see if a free-spinning wheel will simply turn on its own at the right rate without slipping when you translate your vehicle forward - if you use dynamics and enough friction.
