We emphasize the role of nuclear charge radii parameterizations on the thermal equilibrium by studying the correlation between maximal value of average temperature achieved in highly interacting nuclear matter and nuclear stopping for mass symmetric and asymmetric reactions over the entire collision geometry within the framework of isospin-dependent quantum molecular dynamics (IQMD) model. Our study reveals that the increase in available phase space at initial stage through different nuclear charge radii parameterizations, enhance the temperature of nuclear system and reduces the nuclear stopping for both types of reactions. The influence of nuclear charge radii on the thermalization is more pronounced for mass symmetric reactions compared to mass asymmetric reactions. Moreover, the lighter colliding pair are good probe to study the role of nuclear radius in thermalization.
