Default Looking for an outdoor wheel for Mag Avenger

As the title says, im running a bont/avenger setup and im looking for a outdoor wheel which is as big as possible. Currently im using a 85A 59mm Crazy Bruiser (because they came with my old skates) but im looking at something like Radar Pures or Atom Road hogs, however ive heard that the bigger the wheel the better. Can anyone reccommend a good wheel to me? and what is the max size that i can fit on there (im running SG flips as well)

Depends on what you would to for kind of skating? Do you want to do races, marathons, or just recreational skating and cruising around? How are the roads, mostly fine or more rough?
At least, what is your weight?

With these details it's much easier to give you a working solution.

The skating we do is mainly recreational, a group of u go skating around the city along brick paths, road, pavers etc. Currently my wheels feel very rough and give my feet a massage when going over these parts of road or the clickity click sound when skating on bricks with gaps. Which is kind of the reason i was looking for a softer wheel (and larger diameter as my current ones feel quite slow). My weight is about 62kg (136lbs)

I was running some Zombie Hawgs on my Bont/Avenger set up for a while. They are huge and could roll over darn near everything but they are heavy. I loved the wheel, but hated the weight. Since I do not own a lathe to cut them narrower to shed some weight, I just put on some Radar Pures and called it a day for now.

What size (diameter) were your Hawgs, and what firmeness too?
I can precision cut them to a narrower width, or I might buy them from you if you no longer want them.

PM me if either of these apply.

Like my Pures too, nice roll over everything including acorns. Wish they were lighter...but would recomend them for outdoor use.

I have Hyper Rollos on my outdoor skates. Pretty good roll for a 78A wheel, and I haven't had one lock up on a stone or stick yet. Decent price as well.

Got my Road Hogs yesterday, they are MASSIVE even compared to the aussie scotts. I have my blue sg cusions pretty loose, so with the avenger plate the wheel was biting into my Suregrip Rx toe stop even with the scotts when i pushed hard edges , so with the hogs i just lowered them one rotation and they seemed fine. Going to try them out next tuesday hopefully!

These big wheels will help a lot.

Your short wheelbase does not help, and the geometry of your DA45 Avenger plates, which puts the axles nearly right below the pivot balls is also very poor design for outdoor skating comfort on rougher surfaces, in that it puts nearly all your weight load exclusively on ONLY the pivot pin.

This means your "cushions" cannot offer you very much help in the way of CUSHIONING your ride.

Get yourself rolling on a cheap steep kingpin plate with soft cushions and you will be amazed on how much the ride improves.

Unfortunately, most of these plates will not offer as much in the way of wheel clearance for the best larger outdoor wheels.

NTS, Aussie mount. Boen, Proline, WIP would be best, if on a budget a Bont Ignite would be best bang for your buck.

Add the Suregrip NTS Marathon to this list as well. Tough to find, but a great outdoor plate. Plenty of clearance for the larger outdoor wheels.

I'm definitely no expert, but I skate Atom Pulses on my Mg Avengers outside, and I love them. I don't care for the outdoor rumble... Pulses really negate a lot of that. I weigh about 170lbs.

I have roll line heliums, they are great amazing roll and nice grip. I did 15km outdoors on them on smooth paths and they still look like new. I also use them on super slick derby sport court and they work well, very predictable and very light. My comparison wheels are vanguard boomerangs, 80a RB day of the dead, scotts 85a, hyper dualies.

I have a set of those sitting around, I think the wheelbase is pretty short, 150mm something like that.
