its me again figured i would clairify my question a bit more, I mean rigging the way the two smaller front wheels react to when you roll the wheel chair forward and then roll it backwards i beleive the wheels flip 360 like a shopping carts wheels. sorry if i cunfused anyone i think im confused now,lol.:)

Try putting a null object where the front wheels connect to the frame. Then on the piece that swivels and connects to the wheel apply Motion Options>Follower and select one of the nulls you created and turn on allign to path.

Make sure the pivot point for the swivel piece is in the right spot.

Then parent the wheel to the swivel thing.
