wheelwrighting has gone though a lot of evolution over the centuries, especially over the 19th century; solid wooden wheels without tires, spoked wheels with "strakes", spoked wheels with solid iron tires/bands but still having wooden hubs, spoked wheels with iron hubs and iron tires, spoked wheels with iron hubs and rubber tires. Woodwrights tend and tended to specialize in one type.
