I'm wondering about having wider hubs and less lip hanging out unsupported. If the urethane is not supported, how can it really much grip? It would not be forced to do work if it has very little pressure on it form not being supported. I know that the lips help if you are not putting your feet down flat, the pressure is at an angle(since the hub is at an angle it actually does support) and the lip works to settle the wheel as it comes down by gripping at an angle. Then as the wheel contacts and fully contacts the floor the lip really becomes inactive. My theory at least.
