There several species on Earth that could perhaps reach that level of intelligence. Think of crows, octopi, dolphins, chimps, pigs.
However there has to be a evolutionary reason to form intelligence. It takes a great deal of energy to support such a brain, there has to be a compelling reason to make such a commitment.
The general consensus is that intelligence is most likely to form among group hunting predators. These need to communicate and work together. So what you need is a species that lives in small groups, uses communication daily to survive. Like how humans got together and hunted large mammals.
For tool usage one doesn't need human like hands. Elephants, Dolphins, sea otters, Parrots, crows and octopi all shown to use tools. None of them have 'hands'. Now it is likely that some form of hands must evolve to use tools to the same extent we do but it's not a fixed requirement.
Concrete things like the wheel obviously require our species to live on land as I doubt any marine animals would create wheels underwater.
