Default Dwarf hamster wheel

Hi everyone

I have tried to find an answer before posting but I am still pretty confused.

Please could someone help with a recommendation for a wheel for a Campbell Dwarf. I can see lots of people are mentioning the silent runner but is 9" not too big and I did see someone mention they were unsafe for dwarfs.

Any help is appreciated.

The 9" silent runner is fine for a Russian ham, that's what I use, not too big at all as they spin really easily & no safety issues that I'm aware of & I've been using them for a few years now.
The other option for a dwarf is the 21cm wooden wheel from Zooplus but that would need painting with Plastikote before use.

I think I did, it's been a while now so I'm not totally sure!

9” is fine! I have the 21cm wooden trixie wheels for two of my Russians. Stormy will not use any wheel except a Flying Saucer, I have the 6.5” saucer for her. She’s small enough that she can run a totally straight but I wouldn’t generally recommend a flying saucer as a permanent wheel
