Default Losi +2mm wider wheel hexes

I was just wondering if anyone is using these on there buggies? Front or rear or both and what does this effect? Better steering, more stable?

I use them front and back on my 2.0, less steering response and feel but much greater stability

I run them on the rear only for more rear stability and more speed thru the turns.

So if you would run them on front also there wouldn't be as much steering? Im thinking this would be like the Proline V3 tires and why people run them in the rear only.

From what I've read and to the people I've talked to it seems like they are only running the wider wheel hexes on the rear. I'm going to test the difference between just the rear, just the front and both front and rear.
