    I used pizza pans as hubcaps on the trailer I buildt. They fit a 20" wheel perfect a little small on these 24" wheels

    Just a warning... cymbals are really heavy; enough so to turn your Wheel into a Flywheel.

    They are somewhat brittle, which is why they're prone to cracking.

    Around the hole in the center is a common place place for cracks
    or chipping to occur, so inspect that area carefully if buying used cymbals.

    You would definitely want a tight fitting bushing in the hole.

    Not a drummer, but I've been in bands for most of my life; seen plenty of broken cymbals :roll:

    here's what I found... The typical 26-inch rim has a diameter of 559 mm (22.0") and an outside tire diameter of about 26.2" (665 mm)

    The trash can lids are a great idea! Really inovative thinking.

    I thought that might confuse the few of us that know there was "The Band" but no, this was The (marching) band and The (concert) band at The Junior High and High School. haha
