Diameter Type 10 / Leclerc Road Wheels

Hi modellers, I am normally doing 1:35 scale modern tanks and have a question in this forum.
I have a "toy-like" Leopard 2A4 from Aoshima in 1:48 scale.
As the Leopard 2A4 is one of my favorite tanks, would like to make a decent model of this kit.
The proportions of the kit look a bit cpompact, but overall OK.
The tracks are very bad, they are just rubber band. Also the wheels are pretty simple, they are more drums than wheels.
I found a track of 1:35 Revell "Jagdpanzer Kanone" which may fit my 1:48 model, so just desperately looking after wheels.
Checking the internet, I found only two kits in 1:48 scale which can maybe donate the road wheels.
In order to check this prior to a potential buy, I would need to know the dimensions of their road wheels.

I would like to know the diameter of the road wheels of:

1) Tamiya kit 1:48 - JSDGF Type 10

2) Gaso-Linee kit 1:48 - French Leclerc

Can you help me out?
Thanks / Stephan
