    Default Widest Patch

    Who's got the widest wheels out there? I've seen some pics that peoples have of their rides, and some of the wheels look really wide. Trouble is you can't see the manufactors name or brand. By the way....what style ridin are they used for?

    pretty sure the widest are momo's.which are made by chris chaput/abec 11.but he doesnt make them for the public.to get them you have to win a bunch of races.following that would probably tvar new wheels which are still in the proto stage.

    edit:bombhills beat me to it.

    The new 76mm Earthwing downhill wheels are a few millimeters wider than BigZigs, although the contact patch seems to be the same. Avila's are pretty wide but their sharp lip sucks... trim 'em down and they'll ride better.

    I'm tryin real hard to stay under 70mm. I think 68mm - 70mm would do best for a all around board for me. Thanks for all the input.

    OK .. so I'm resurrecting this post from the grave because I need anyone who has the knowledge to share the wealth. I did a Forum search and couldn't find the answer, that's why this bump. Staying with the original topic of wide patch and using the info y'all gave me I wound up with the 3dm Avilas 75mm x 65mm x 81a .. the ugly cotton candy blues. For what I do, which is mostly carving at under 20mph, they're great. OBTW, they are mounted on S10 trucks and under an Original Torpedo. SO .. now I'm moving on to a second board. Staying with stricly Carving, I'm going with a Loaded Vanguard flex 2, and I'll use the S10s also. That's set. Now it's back to the wheels.
    Seems as though there is a lot of hype around the Abec Centrax, and the Nersh Money Hax when speaking of wheels that are nearly as wide as they are tall. Both seem to be well represented and wheels of good reputation. My question is .. what happened, or why aren't the 3dm Avilas included with them in comparison? I've tried to find out info on the Black Ops series of 3dm Avilas to no avail. Just strikes me as being strange that a wheel which is nearly identical in size to a Money Hax isn't mentioned as being someones .. "my favorite wheel for Maryhill". At nearly $15 less than the Hax .. and $30 less than the Centrax ... I'm looking for some real sound advice or reason why I should go for the "big bucks" wheels and pass on a wheel that is every bit as good, but considerably less? I'm serious .. your input is crucial to my next investment. Thanks ~ Talyon

    I have a set of Hax I used for a couple of runs that I'll sell you for a good price. Still practically brand new. I liked them but I'm not using them enough to justify keeping them. If someone else can put them to use, fine by me.

    No?
    I know lots of people who run untrimmed centrax. There's tons of pictures all over the fish.
    Nersh money hax are also obscenely wide.
