If it needs rolling see Ray at wheel power, I did my Cossie with his arch rolling device.

It's more about offset, camber and tyre choice than the diameter mate. Some camber and a bit of stretch can literally make the idfference between hitting a pothole and not even flinching or rolling over a stone and arching out.

Do a bit of research, use your head, and it'll be easy as pie.
