    When I was a kid, we had this old plastic scooter type thing with 3 wheels (two in the rear). On of the back plasic wheels was broke with a chunck missing, so my dad thought he'd try something different, and he filled it with concrete.

    It worked fine after that... just always tilted to one side if we ever tried to pick it up.

    It wasn't a big wheels. It was actually some sort of scooter with handles that came up chest high (at the time) and no pedals.
