Has anyone had a go at modifying City vehicles released in the past 2-3 years, to be 4-studs wide instead of the standard 6?
I've been building a town based on Cafe-Corner proportions, and I find the majority of recent City Vehicles to be too large in proportion to the buildings. I've noticed vehicles are becoming more and more realistic in size relative to the minifigs, but the buildings aren't - it's a bit of a mismatch in my opinion. I've contemplated making the buildings larger to redress this, but this would require too much time, effort and money.
Instead, i'm thinking about downsizing the vehicles. I'd appreciate any thoughts, advice, examples from Those with more experience. Cheers.

I just discovered that there are some tire treads that are only half the width of the ones in most of the sets, so I may see f I can find some of them.
The design ID for the slim wheel is 4624473 ('flat silver'). Part number 93594 [bricklink]
The design ID for the slim tyre is 4617848 (black). Part number 51011 [bricklink]
There are lots of other compatible wheels -
And other compatible tyres, e.g. -
@bluemoose I'll have a go at putting some of the slimmer tires on existing cars and see how they look.
Hoping the rumors are true about a City Parking Lot being released sometime : )
