Wheels get us from one place to another, help us move heavy loads and are what separate us from the monkeys. There’s virtually no limit to what can be done with a wheel, and that’s why we’re having a contest that features them!

We’re putting out the call for submissions - if you’re building or modifying something with a wheel, be it car, motorcycle, bicycle, wheel of fortune coffee table, or Fred Flintstone car complete with hand-chiseled stone wheels, we want you to enter it in our Wheels Challenge. Simply enter your Step by Step Instructable, Video, or Slideshow and be eligible to win an Epson HD Home Theater Projector, Garmin GPS Navigator, or M-Audio Monitor Speakers.

How It Works

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Apr 23, 2012 and Jul 2, 2012 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Wheels Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
