Default BIG wheels and standard plates....

inline mounted plates are easy to shim up for clearance. DA45s can be tuned to counter the way the height changes the steering and handling. Hope to get some tall wheels in the future. Got one of my plates earmarked for some now.... running 73mm outdoor wheels on them now.

Running 78x41mm wheels on my setup and don't think I could ever go back
Not running standard plates, these are stable AND turn.

I like my taller setup, no boot bite at all with 63mm. Boot bite limits capabilities and range of you turns. My outdoor plates use some 1/4" spacers under the boots( inline boots ) and can be raised more if needed then retuned if needed. Almost no one liked how tall my rig is but, it don't matter, they skate fine. I wouldn't go back to shorter setups either, love the freedom of range too much.
