Default Wheel Size for Syrian Hamster?

We got our first hamster recently and me and my sister know the wheel is too small (about 7 inches diameter), and to get a new one we need to get a bigger cage, as it is only 7.5 inches tall, or create an extension with another cage. However our parents do not think we need anything more. Is there any advise anyone can give us to help resolve the issue?

Hiya there,
sorry for the late reply, unfortunatley yes, parents often dissagree with better hamster welfare. The size varies on the hamster, for all hamsters, the bigger the better, however they alll have individual minimums;
Syrian - 12 inch+ (you can give them a slightly smaller one when they are younger)
Chinese - 8 inch +
Campbells - 8 inch +
Robovoski - 7 inch +
Winter White - 8 inch +
Please note that these may not be 100% correct, this si quite a debatable topic, however everyone agrees the bigger the better, and also if your hamster isn't a Syrian, I would recommend asking others, as I only found the other sizes through the internet! Lastly, please make sure not to use a flying saucer, a wheel with rungs or a sandpaper like running track! Hope this helps and good luck!

Sorry for the very late reply. Kinda forgot about this post...
Thanks for the advice though, it's definitely going to be useful as a reference, although I think they're pretty mush persuaded by now.

Massive thanks for the help!
