You could try writing your own plugin.

It should consist of a cmd_vel subscriber (or whichever topic you use for the velocity commands) and the part where you apply the command on your wheel (so for example either a setVelocity command or if you use ros_control then a publisher for the command topic).

If you're not familiar with writing plugins then I suggest you start with the tutorials.

Do check the source code of diffrive_plugin as it has the necessary components you need.
