They're standard HP60 tubes....something like 3.5"OD, .5" wall if I remember right. The truss is 2" wide so it covers some of the radius at the top and bottom, maybe that makes them look smaller.

The rear currently has this:

The truss is already wider than the front used to be, the axletubes and housing are bigger and beefier, and it's got 1/2 the weight coming down on it so functionally there's not much concern there. It would look better to have something that matches a bit more, but I'll leave that up to the owner.
