Oversize "33 inch" HO wheels ?

Hi

I am wondering if any of the range of 33" metal wagon wheels of various manufacturers in HO are oversized?  I know that IHC makes ones that are 31" hence, undersized.

So 36" wheels are too large?

A bit, yeah. 

I have some but they don't look proportionate alongside other wheels I'm using & I think they'd scrape the underside of the chassis they're intended to be used on.

A shade under 10mm (.393") would be right.

Actually, a bit over 3/8” (.375” to .380”) would be about right.

My question was in response to IMO vague question from scaro.  36" wheels is "oversize" compared to a 33" wheel.  :)
