Default proline v3's?

hi guys i just bought a set of proline v3 rims with v3 revolver tyres and am wondering what their effects would be?

most guys that are using them that i know are using them just on the rear is what i want to know is would using them on the front aswell give more steering or will it reduce it?

whats the general theory behind wider rims. i know different surfaces are going to effect the handling but in general how would the extra width effect the overall handling?

i guess they would only be good for a watered down track as they would float a bit on a dusty surface rather than cut through the dust like the regular ones would be inclined to do more so.

whats your thought's guys?

I don't run them just because of the fact the they are not ROAR legal.
They were made to be used just in the rear. They would give the rear end more grip on slippery surfaces.
I would imagine that on the front they would rub some where and take away steering.
