How to rotate a part in onshape

I have a car which is oriented faced to the right side (from isometric). But the wheel that needs to be connected is facing forwards. Is there any way to reposition this so I can fit the two together, without having to restart the whole model again?

    I've created a ring with a bevel.  The bevel may be on the wrong side for printing so I want to rotate the part 180 degrees.
    I can't for the life of me figure out the AXIS requirement.  I try to click planes but that doesn't do it.  I'm lost.

    A few thoughts:
    1. It's best to take advantage of parametric CAD and just remodel the bevel on the right side.
    2. Perhaps you can just rotate it in your slicer?
    3. Failing 1 and 2, you can make an axis in a couple of easy ways - either make a sketch with a line to use as the axis, or use an implicit mate connector. Like so: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/b20feacf1f8a1423557fbc16/w/05f2f52b4ed4feaea73e0b78/e/60e16f608fd3f60c44893461
