Default Rim width size

Does a thicker rim width simply mean the disc is faster? Or does it also mean more stable?
Just curious. I noticed the new mold beast's rim looks just like a sidewinder rim, but thicker.

Rim width determines a discs "speed" factor for the most part...1.9 is generally accepted as speed 9, 2.0 as speed 10, etc... This is fudged some by the European companies. Rim depth or its thickness has no inherinet determining factor on how over or under stable a disc is. The shape of the rim and top of the disc is the determining factor. Plastic and plh variances within a particular mold also determine a discs stability. Dome can also be a factor here. Thinner rims, katana, mamba, td2 are understable...but this is because if the slope or slant of the rim.

Put a buzz next to a meteor. You can see how the buzz concaves, but the meter convexes(I may of reversed these...not sure) but that kinda helps to explain.

Also the higher speed a disc the higher the intended cruising speed to achieve the intended ratings. A mamba not thrown at the correct speed can possibly behave just as over stable as a firebird(remember its possible)
