I need to calculate the rpm of my flywheel on my wobbler so I can determine which flowmeter to use. Any suggestions? Is there any way to calculate rpm without running the flywheel?

It depends entirely on what you know to start with. You have to have some sort of information to begin the calculation, and you have not identified any at all.
