    what is the moment of inertia about the wheels , when the vehicle is accelerated upto 100 km/hr and the foot is lifted off the accelerator

    Er.. the moment of inertial is not a function of the speed of rotation!

    the moment of inertia is a a function of the geometry and the mass of the object, bt in this case i am confused , as in which geometry to consider??

    This getting to be confusing. If you know that it is due to geometry, then why did you bring up the motion of the vehicle?

    The "geometry" in question is the location of the mass distribution about the axis of rotation.
