How do Suited Wheel Aces Rank Against One Another?

With shorter stacks I assume bigger kicker is better so they would rank A5s, A4s, A3s, and A2s. With deeper stacks does this change? I'm thinking about when we hold A5s and we need both cards for the wheel 56 is in more V ranges than 36 or 26 in instances where we hold A3s or A2s, respectively, for the wheel straight.

    A5 the best to A2 being the worst.

    Technically you're right but I don't think it makes enough difference to matter. I hardly think it makes that much difference between A5 and A2 either in practice, but a little. If we happen to be up against pocket 3 specifically it would, but if our opponent has AK it doesn't matter much if we pair the 2 or the 5. Also if our kicker is a 2 or a 4 it's normally not going to play anyway so that doesn't matter much either. Just small differences.
