Magic Wand or Quick Select tool. Hold shift while selecting to add multiple colour regions. Set a tolerance of about 20, antialias on, contiguous on.

I've tried this kind of thing before, and always found that pathing the spokes, then use that as a basis for a mask/selection is only way I could get satisfactory results.
--shift studio.

What shift said. Easy to do and you can feather the edge (after creating the shape) to suit the image quality.

I would do the same. All I would add is that you can probably get away with basically straight line segments or close to it with broken tangents. Option/alt click on the points to break tangents as necessary.

Fourth vote for pen tool and feather selections. Any auto selection is going to fall apart on those spoke highlights.

Quick mask.

Select what you need, not what you don't need. It's usually (and I do mean usually, there's exceptions to this rule) faster.

Set your brush to 100% flow and Opacity and quite a hard edge, then for the bigger selections you can fill them with the paint bucket (set the tolerance to 250 and voila, no edges!) so you just need to draw the outline of the selection.

Takes like 2 minutes. Works great for a lot of stuff.

Adjust the the contrast (to make a selection), then apply that to the image.
