I suppose if that were possible it would already exist and be popular, but I'd like to know from somebody who knows this sort of thing.
If you want a very large diameter disc (22.6cm) with a huge rim (2.6cm) you might want to try to find a Prometheus. FYI: 2.6cm would be a speed 16 by convention, but the Prometheus was estimated to be about a speed 8.

The Prometheus was the first disc designed and produced by Salient Discs, with the famous tagline "Designed by scientists, not hippies." (btw, if you're bored, Salient's history on this forum is quite entertaining.)
