Yes, wheel halves bolts, brake caliper half bolts, for sure. Hopefully you have the plans. Or, maybe someone here has the specs for your plane.

The axle nut-----------run it down until solid drag on the wheel as you spin it, then bump the tire a few times on the sidewall just in case-----and rotate again to see if it changed when you bumped it. After it is seated back off the nut just enough to relieve the drag on the spinning tire, and insert the cotter pin.
