To apply the Two Body Tire model to a wheel, either a TwoBodyTireComponent may be added to an existing Actor, or a TwoBodyTireActor may be added to the level. When added, the hub and tire RigidBody should be specified from the details panel as well as the outer and inner radius. From this view, also the dynamics parameters of the wheel can be specified.
