The effect of tire diameter on turning

  1. Jun 15, 2017 #1
    Hi Im building a tricycle of sorts and i wanted to know if the diameter of the front tire has any effect on the turning speed of the trike i would imagine that a greater tire circumference would increase the speed of rotation. Correct me if Im wrong.
