you guys are missing the point. wide rims don't make the tire bigger. the minor profile change is insignificant on the trail.
you can run lower pressure (5-ish psi) without the tire feeling like its "rolling" during cornering - more traction, smoother ride. that's it.
and the hookless beads are very very hard to burp, even at these lower pressures.
and the hookless beads are thick and tough and difficult to damage, even smashing them really fucking hard on rocks at high speed, even at these lower pressures.
my new bike came with 21mm internal rims and they feel ridiculous coming from 30 and 35mm rims. i have to run high pressures and they still feel awful cornering.
if you can't tell the difference then you have nothing to worry about. team robot would say its because you suck at riding and you should kill yourself. i say some people are just less sensitive to what their bike feels like. if you haven't tried wide rims then your "observations" are irrelevant to this thread.
