Rc tank suspension

I am completely new to rc tanks though i have been building autonomous robots from past 1 year.
I want to make a Rc tank with suspension system just as the Hotchkiss tank suspension system.I understood how it works and all and will try it soon.
My question is the dummy wheels used in the hotchkiss tank(in the below attached image) is smaller than the drive sprocket/wheel.I have no access to small wheels so i was thinking about using the same diameter wheels for both the suspension/dummy wheels as well as the main drive wheels.Will it be ok or the dummy wheels have to be smaller than the main wheels in case of suspension ?

If you are trying to copy a particular tank you should have wheels proportional to the real ones. If you are doing your own thing, use whatever you want.
