Question Hamster wheel for Syrian hamster

Hi so Iíve been struggling to figure out which size wheel is perfect for my new Syrian cooper! I originally bought a 12 inch wheel and he could not even move it one bit so I bought an 8 inch since he is on the smaller side. I was wondering if this is considered to bend his back or no ? I have a picture for reference. Iím willing to upgrade I just wanted someoneís advice in order to fully tell if his back is arching or not

I think your 12in wheel may be faulty or needs adjusting. Which one is it?

I have the 12in Trixie wheel in the hamster playground and even the tiniest dwarf can and does run in it well.

My two Syrians have a 10in wheel and run well in it. I wouldn't go for anything smaller than that.

The 8in wheel i'd only give to a dwarf hamster.
