Hello, I am a new, novice user of Cinema 4D. Basically all I need to do is have this wheel rotate/spin around this first letter (see picture) and I am totally lost. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

The easiest way to to do it is to keyframe the rotation parameter in the object's coordinates tab. To do that you just have to determine the appropriate axis and then control-click on the little dot next to the parameter name. Then go to the end of the animation, change the rotation value, and control-click again.

You'll probably want to open the timeline, click on the first keyframe, and set the interpolation to linear (default is spline) so the rotation is constant.
