I used narrow tires on my latest (66' Shelby Mustang) because they looked more accurate to the size, and that they would steer better, the rear would have been the same, but i needed them connected to the drive train, and the narrow have 0 shaped holes and not + this means that they would only get a small bit of the turning, if any!

Very nice! One question though. I've seen this done on a few other peoples' builds also, but why the mis-matching wheels? Is it to allow the steering (something I'm yet to really try) to work better?
It's so that the narrow tires in front can steer better and the fat tires in back can look good. =]
