OpenRC 1:10 Experimental Wheel (Dualstrusion)
by barspin, published
But what if i did something like on this thing: thingiverse.com/thing:37131 only with a design that would be smaller and better suited for gravel and sand? Should work right?
So i just decided to print the wheels just to get a feel for if maybe it would work... just for fun as always ;-)
Its designed to be printed using dualstrusion.

You could start fiddling with some silicone from a hardware store. I saw someone mentioned sugru, which you an make a ghetto version of silicone and some starch/flour. http://www.instructables.com/i...
Of course, you could test with some other materials mixed the starch.
Then there's always some form of urethane rubber: http://www.smooth-on.com/Ureth... I'm sure there are a lot of suppliers out there.
What about a couple of o-rings around the wheel? You could place the ring between the 'nubs' of the current design, so without the o-ring, the wheel would be good on sand/gravel and with the o-ring the wheel would work on roads?
