Default What size wheels for a deb?

Just wondering what size wheels I need for a Deb. I got 2 1/4 but it looked kinda small.

Are you going to fly off pavement, grass, weeds, dirt, snow or water?

The field has a paved runway, but I can't seem to stay on that.

i fly off grass, and 3" seem to be fine. I would suggest getting the lightest wheels you can, though - no use carrying extra weight. The foam wheels are nice and light, and work fine for a 40 size plane. 3 1/2" wouldn't be too big at all, imo.
