How many wheels does a helicopter have?

Do helicopters have wheels? I assume that they have wheels like planes do, but I’ve never seen them traveling anywhere except in the sky.

Most helicopters don’t have any wheels at all. Instead, they are equipped with skids, which are long, ski-like pieces of metal attached to the bottom of the helicopter. These allow helicopters to touch down and take off without coasting, but the copter may still skid a little.
However, particularly large helicopters sometimes have wheels. In these cases, helicopters will have between three and six wheels in total, typically arranged in a triangular formation.
