Default 165's on an 11?

Doc,

I've got a 165 Giotto that I intend to put on an 11 Diamond Walker boot. Thoughts / hints / suggestions? How terrifyingly short will that be?

I have a 170 on my current Bonts - which are 42's, and it's not too bad - although I think I put it too far forward. My front wheels are closer to my big toe than the ball of my foot. I've noticed in some builds - some guys mount the plate what looks like center of the boot... I assume it's to get proper axel placement?

Any input would be most helpful. And if you have pics of something similar, that'd be all the better.

Thanks,
Bob
