    If you use a 4" sidewheel and you have increments of 6mm what would the gap be on a 5" wheel if you get my drift?

    The curcmference of a 4" wheel in MM is 319.2, diveded by 6mm gives 53.2 equal divisions, on a 5" wheel dived into the same number divisions they would be 7.5mm wide. Simples!

    Which also confirms that dividing by 4 and multiplying by 5 to arive at the same answer is another method of calculating it.

    The 5" wheel is 125% larger than a 4" wheel. So I guess 6cm would then be 7.5cm.
