I like skinnier tires because they are lighter and apparently help with manuals.

Also my brake mounts are crooked and with skinnier tires they clear easier. It's purely cosmetic though.

A skinnyer tire on the rear helps in alot of different ways. It will make your bike roll faster, help with clearance issues on slammed rear ends, reduce rotating mass and make spins easyer, easyer to pivot on for things like 180 rollouts, and gives a better balance point for maunals.

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray chicago mornin
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
cause if theres one thing that she dont need
Its another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, dont you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or hell grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way

Well the world turns
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
A young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
Tries to run, but he dont get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

As her young man dies,
On a cold and gray chicago mornin,
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
