Set your vehicle construction plans in motion by learning how to make wheels in Lego Fortnite
Exploring the vast open world of Lego Fortnite can take forever! You will have to think of alternative methods of traversal to speed things up. While gliding can be a very fun and efficient way of traveling in the game, its limited airtime means you cannot solely rely on it as your plan B. You will have to craft vehicles at some point for traversing terrains. Learning how to make Wheels in Lego Fortnite marks your first stride toward this endeavor. Let’s find out how you can get Wheels in Lego Fortnite.
How to Make Wheels Lego Fortnite: Things You Need
The invention of wheels significantly accelerated the evolution of human civilization. You can expect to have a similar boost in Lego Fortnite once you figure out how to craft Wheels in the game. Before getting to the building phase, we must unlock the Wheel recipe in Lego Fortnite. Sourcing Flexwood is the first thing you have to do. Since Flexwood is only available in the Dry Valley, you might have to clock in a significant amount of gameplay before you get your hands on some. You will be lucky, however, if the desert biome is nearby.

Level up the Crafting Bench to Rare using three Sand shells, six Sand claws, 12 Knotroot rods, and 15 Marble slabs. Forge a Rare Forest Axe there using three Knotroot Rods and five Cut Amber. Now that you have the necessary tool for Flexwood extraction, go to the Dry Valley and cut down a cactus. You will get Flexwood and also unlock the recipes for Small Wheel, Large Wheel, and Dynamic Foundation. Convert the Flexwood to Flexwood Rod using a Lumber Mill. The final blueprints for Small and Large Wheels will unlock afterward.

After you have the blueprints, you are ready to craft a Wheel. Go to the Build menu and access the Toys section to get the wheels rolling. You will need a Flexwood Rod and Flexwood for a Small Wheel build. The Flexwood Rod requirement stays the same to build a Large Wheel, but you will need an extra piece of Flexwood.

How to Use Wheels in Lego Fortnite
Congratulations, you now have the Wheels, but they won’t be of much use to you unless you attach them to a Dynamic Foundation. Go to the Toys section from the Build Menu again and craft a Dynamic Foundation using four pieces of Flexwood. You would also need to attach a Thruster to ensure the vehicle moves across different terrains. Without a Thruster, the vehicle will only be able to move downhill. As of writing, the Steering Wheel is not live in the game, but Epic Games has confirmed that it will be added soon for better vehicle mobility.
