The Tyrrell had four front wheels. Perhaps you are thinking of Williams' six-wheeler? *PIC*

The Williams FW08B. Never actually raced, but was built to challenge The Tyrrell if that car became successful. The smaller rear tires were a response to Tyrrell's smaller FRONT tires. Tyrrell did that in order to reduce the 'frontal aspect' of the car, aerodynamically, but Williams' designer noted that the larger rear tires would offset the smaller tires' advantage...so what happens when the rear tires are the same size as the fronts?
