    I remember this being an issue ( still is for me ) how are people getting around this issue with turrets you own blasting off your vehicles wheels? These Turrets are on my Base not the Vehicle.

    Not necessarily quite the same, but I had the issue with them just blasting off parts of my ship that could be in their arc of fire. The only way I stopped it was making sure that their fire arcs did not intersect with any part of my ship. So, I basically had the gatling turrets on the four sides of my planetary scout ship (none on top or bottom) such that they could only fire away from the ship. This was for 'dog'/'spider' defense. I gave up on wheeled vehicles as being too much of a pain.

    Near the bottom of the turrets' config is a "Target Neutrals" switch. I think that stops them from sniping your tires.

    Yep, you cannot setup the wheels themselves. So they are default "neutral"
    If your turrets are setup to target neutrals your wheels will get shot at.

    Don't target neutral is also in my mind the best way to go, or making sure you have your wheels hooded (Like your bike has) if you expect a lot of neutrals in the neighborhood.

    Well, wheels need an entire rework anyways. Casting them as neutral as well as not being able to replace them when damaged is a bit silly.
