Drawing a four spokes rim is one of the easiest things ever.

Start with a circle then draw a line from top to bottom passing through the middle of it. This will be the first two spokes.4 spoke 1

Now do the same thing from side to side. Now we have two more spokes for a total of four.

4 spoke 2

 

 

To draw an eight spoke rim you we have to find the midpoint between spokes. To do this draw a guide line from the tip of two spokes and mark the midpoint.4 spoke 3

 

Draw a line from that mark through the center extending to both ends of the circle. This line is spokes five and six.

To find the remaining two spokes do the same thing on the other side.4 spoke 5

 

 

Here we have an eight spoke rim. That was easy. Wasn’t it?
