Thank you for posting the charts. I think there are something wrong with the inches column. for example, first number is 550 inches should be 5.50 inches.

Bumping for my reference. I'm thinking about the Avenger DA45 with a short forward mount.
I'm wearing a size 7 boot (very loose without an insert), and my foot measures 6 1/4" from center ball to center heel.
I'm thinking I would need a size 1 plate?
The first chart points toward a 5.75" wheel base for a SF setup on 6.5 to 7 boot. Sure-Grip measures theirs BETWEEN the axles instead of center-to-center like everyone else. Therefore you need to subtract about 5/16" from 5.75" to get the S-G distance of 5.44 (5 7/16)
The closest to that on the Avenger chart is Size 1, which is listed as 5 3/8".

In other words, yes. Size 1 for you. I just wanted to show the math.
thank you! Smile Would it matter much that the boot is too big?
I'm thinking I might just get a new boot altogether since it would be silly to upgrade wheels and plates while continuing to use a boot that's too big. According to the Riedell size chart, I should be in a 6, and I had originally planned to get a smaller size eventually. I confess I don't look forward to breaking in a new boot.
Choose your plate according to your 'correct' boot size.
