Rik, I don't have a metric caliper, so you'll have to convert. I took measurements at two places without the tire on - at the visible OD of the rim, and at the largest OD (the part that "centers" the rubber tire). The visible OD of the Tiger is 1.695" and for the Panther it is 1.825." At the largest OD, for the Tiger I it is 1.833" and for the Panther it is 1.969." -Mike

I think you ment 800CM and 850 CM. In Millimeters that would put the wheels at around 3.5 inches Riv.

Nope, Rivetcounter was totally right, 800mm for the Tiger I and 850mm for the Panther.
Wheels of 850cm in diameter should be higher than the tank itself ...8.5m some 335 inches......
