Remember also that a larger diameter wheel will move the concentration of mass closer to the outside of the wheel. I have seen lightweight wheels in up to 20 inch sizes (cost is very high) but the tire weight is most of the assembly then. Increasing the power required to get the wheel and tire assembly moving/stopped.
