What do you think?

How does a larger front wheel add/reduce handling performance?

For example, larger/thinner wheel/tire is better for cruising but diminishes turning ability?

Do the spokes add anything besides looks and maintenance?
:confused:

Spokes add a tube, which can go flat. Now you need a jack instead of just pluging the tire. I had a spoked tire fail in the middle of Wyoming nearest town was 50 miles. Tough place for a flat tire and no way to fix it. For me it is cast wheels only. As for diameter it is what ever you like.
