The Actionscript

In frame 1 we define the two functions we need: changeWheel() and removeWheel(a,j). We set the var i to 0.

i=0;
function changeWheel(){
    gotoAndPlay("repeat");
    if(i==1){
        duplicateMovieClip("wheel_1","wheel_2",1);
        with(wheel_2){
            _x=50;
            _y=50;
        }
        myColor= new Color(wheel_2.tire);
        myColor.setRGB(0xff0000);
    }
    if(i==2){
        duplicateMovieClip("wheel_1","wheel_3",2);
        with(wheel_3){
            _x=75;
            _y=75;
    }
    myColor= new Color(wheel_3.tire);
    myColor.setRGB(0x00ff00);
    }
    if(i==3){
        duplicateMovieClip("wheel_1","wheel_4",3);
        with(wheel_4){
            _x=100;
            _y=100;
        }
        myColor= new Color(wheel_4.tire);
        myColor.setRGB(0x0000ff);
    }
    if(i==4){
        duplicateMovieClip("wheel_1","wheel_5",4);
        with(wheel_5){
            _x=125;
            _y=125;
        }
        myColor= new Color(wheel_5.tire);
        myColor.setRGB(0xf0ff0f);
    }
    if(i==6){
        removeWheel(2,5);
        _root.gotoAndStop("stop");
    }
}

function removeWheel(a,j){
    for(n=a;n<=j;n++){
        wheel = "wheel_"+n;
        removeMovieClip(_root.wheel);
    }
}
In the function changeWheel() we first want the timeline to go to the framename "repeat" in frame 2 to repeat plying the movieclip for the number of times (i) we define. Then we have several if statements where whenever the value of i changes, we create a new wheel and change the color of the tire of the new wheel. You can of course change whatever you want or just repeat the movieclip.

In frame 2 we increase the value of i by 1 writing i++;. Whenever the timeline goes to this frame ("repeat"), i is incremented by 1. In frame 10 we the function changeWheel() is called. And this is all there is to this little clip.
