Skinnies is front

Has anybody tried running spare tires in the front with wides in the back? I like the look of a drag car, plus dont wide tires in the front just add more rolling resistance? I understand that spare tires are only rated for 50 mph and when braking hard there is a lot for force in the front, but still, it looks cool.

There isn't much weight in the front. Skinny tires would only exacerbate that problem.

I would not want to drive on the street with less than 195's. Don't think it'd be very safe.

I agree completely. Maybe strictly for a drag application it would be fine but I think on the street it would be dangerous. An emergency stop would be impossible.

These cars have a big tendency to understeer with so little weight up front. Removing rubber would spell disaster on street or track.
