Can you find the circumference of each wheel?

A friend of mine in Bangalore owns a horse-driven carriage. It was found that the fore wheels of the carriage make four more revolutions than the hind wheel in going 96 feet. However, it was also found that if the circumference of the fore wheel was 3/2 as great and of the hind wheel 4/3 as great, then the fore wheel would make only 2 revolutions more than hind wheel in going the same distance of 96 feet.
