HEY BOB, WHAT ARE YOU THINK'N, IT A NO BRAINER?? THE BIGGER THE TIRE THE
BIGGER THE DIAMETER, THUS THE MORE TIMES THE DRIVE SHAFT WILL TURN FOR EVERY
REVOLUTION OF THE TIRE.
No offense intended - but the statement made above is 100% incorrect. One
revolution is one revolution, whether the tire is 10 inches diameter or 100
feet in diameter. What will change is the distance traveled in one tire
revolution. Obviously, the bigger tire will travel a longer distance through
one complete revolution. However, the drive shaft will turn the exact same
number of turns in one revolution of the axle shaft, regardless of what
diameter the tire is. Believe it - it is a fact.
