    I've used the smaller Vex omni wheels for years and I strongly endorse these larger wheels. First: these wheels are more rugged than the smaller wheels. Second: being larger they work with the two larger sizes of solid Vex wheels. Invariably a student in my Vex class will want to make a robot using the large Vex wheels because he/she wants it to go fast, and it does go fast - in a straight line. When the student tries to make the robot turn he/she finds out the disadvantage of using big wheels. These large omni wheels eliminate that problem and allow large wheel robots to dominate in both speed and maneuverability.
