To wire the wheels, you'll need some sidecutters, non-rusting wire and a good pair of locking pliers.

Cut about three inches of wire and double loop it around the cross-section of the spokes.

Using the locking pliers, twist the wire tightly around.

Here's what the twisted wire should look like at this point.

Snip the excess wire off with the sidecutters.

After the wire has been trimmed, fold the leftover down to the spokes.
Completed wheel. The spokes are now a whole bunch stronger.
