Are you talking largest radius of hurricane force winds or are you using another parameter to determine largest?

My historical knowledge is fairly limited on this subject, but I believe Hurricane Floyd in 1999 registers the largest TS force winds at a diameter around 580 miles. Anyone think of one bigger?
