. . . aaaand I finally foiund my outdoor wheels. The RAD Glide wheels were awesome. Rolled them for 12 miles today on our new rail trail that included a bunch of wet leaves and gypsy moth caterpillar crap and had no issues whatsoever. (the moth caterpillars are horrid this year)

The narrow contact patch made for a faster roll and the rounded profile actually felt better than a squared profile does IMO. I rolled the 12 miles in just under 45 minutes, which is a hair above 16mph average, which is actually as fast as I roll my 3x125mm inlines on average.
