brian, i meant - where the wheel hits the road, to have nails coming out. the profile you have now might be good enough for snow - but not for ice. and even with snow it might fill up fast - but with spikes it might be better on snow and ice.

Why dont you have the wheel as a foot also. It could be connected to the leg on the inside, but turn 90 degrees so it's flat.

Just an idea.

Hmm.. I was thinking I could do something like that z1mmnd14, but then you wouldn't see the detail I have been working on, so if anything, it could allways just lock up the wheels, and still use them as "feet" because they are now spiked, and would provide enough friction... I think.. Who knows... Well see.... Haven't decided if I want to go with the more fluid or blockey furture look.. Know what I mean?

Go with both. Blocky with rounded corners. Completely hard edges might look a bit odd, but smoothing might give it a futuristic "blocky" look and still look sleek.
