I am currently skating on 65mm Radar Energy wheels. They come narrow and I still hit them together but never crashed because of it. If the 70s are dangerous I just go back to the 65s. Except for the occasional perfectly shaped rock I really love the Energy wheels.
Cutting the faces off reduces weight. My wheels were 85mm with large radiused corners that made for a narrower footprint and very fat overhanging faces on the wheels. After cutting them down to 73mm the footprint widened and then cutting the faces flat with the hubs, lost a lot of weight. Light weight and a wide footprint with a narrower wheel was the goal, I got what I wanted by cutting extra large wheels down
