Contact patch size has a lot to do with traction. But it simply has to be big enough to get you to 1g in any direction. It can be too small and you won't be able to get 1g out of it.

Wheelie could be done at extreme lean angles if you were close to the balance point already. You couldn't *start* a wheelie with both tires on the ground and a 45 degree lean angle, simply because...
