    How simple it would be if you have car and model.
    Measure, for example, the hood (on car and on model), and the conversion you'll get precise scale, and then just lightly do you figure what you need even size wheels

    on the toy car i measured a point on the car and the wheel size, both in mm figured the percentage difference between the two..

    measured the exact same point on my car added the percentage and bam! 16 inch
