stay away if you can get away with it, if not, rage one. like someone else mentioned, they are made for a reason.
the bottom line is a wide board is more board and more board will always ride differently than a regular deck. slower edge to edge, somewhat heavier, sometimes a different radius/less sidecut, not much opportunity for a taper in the tail, etc. you have to weigh those issues on the hill... some may not even notice those nuances and others can stand it.
demo both and go from there if the opportunity comes up.
