It is obvious that wide rimmed drivers have the vast majority of the plastic in the rim, but it's not obvious that this translates to more MOI?
A wider rim negates some of the effect of moving plastic from the plate to the rim, and since the grip is further in towards the center the net result - I think - is less MOI. Since weight is evenly distributed around the disc it's not like changing just the head of the hammer, might be like giving the hammer a slightly heavier head but at the same time shortening and fattening the handle

Ok, that might be muscle memory from a lot of hammer work intruding on my thinking
Anyway, there's two things happening at once here; You think the MOI is heavier in drivers and this is bad, I think the MOI is heavier in putters/mids and It's good (contributes to that higher speed you were talking about). Mafa seems (much) more able than I am to do the maths on MOI, i'll go to sleep now and hope he or someone else comes up with a better look at this before I get into deeper shit than I am already... HopeI'll think straighter tomorrow
