 wide rear wheels than the front is for the reasons of traction and the ‘look’. When a rear-wheel-drive car has a lot of power, it can cause wheelspin easily which is why wider rear tyres can give better traction.
However, wide tyres tend to follow grooves and ridges in the road more easily (‘tramlining’), they require more steering effort, create more rolling resistance (effort required to start them turning and to keep them turning) and make it more difficult to get good suspension performance through them being heavier. much extra grip when turning.

Large tires provide greater surface area touching the ground, thus providing more pulling power. Basically tractors have larger rear tires because of the higher speeds at which the tractors are located, thus the larger tires with the same ground speed. Moreover gear ratios have to be as high as b / c of the tires.
