    A wheel collider is not quite what it might seem...

    It doesn't really implement a rotating, wheel-shaped collider object but actually just adds forces to the rigidbody based on the distance from the ground, the speed of the object in different directions and the drive force. It is really quite a specialised collider but you may be able to use it for things other than vehicles (eg, camera rigs that follow the ground surface).
