How are you cutting up the mouse pad to get strips to go all around the wheel and what are you using to join the strips?

I cut the strip ~2cm longer than the circumference of the wheel. I cut out a wedge shape in one end and the inverse of it in the other in the foam only taking care to leave the cloth as reinforcement. You may want to make sure the angle of the join points forward+down in the direction of travel to avoid motor torque tugging at the glued overlap too much. I used contact glue (flexible when hardened, suitable for shoe repair). After a long use the foam wore out before the glue joint. I measured on the hub, joined the ends together off it and glued the "tire" onto it afterward.
