Default wider front wheel hex and wider front suspension mount?

What is the handling different between using wider front wheel hex and wider front suspension mount?

In my experience wider front hexes deaden the steering feel slightly. I assume that is mostly due to increase in Scrub Radius.

Good heavens someone mentioned Scrub Radius correctly on this forum, I tip my hat to you sir

@Smashrc wider hex is bad and wider front suspension mount are neither bad nor good as it's something you can "correct" with other setup possibilities.

Scrub Radius is something we play around a lot with on my full scale super late model and back in the day we used it on my custom works dominator dirt oval car.
