You can see the 747 main gear steering system in action here, where the 2 outer struts steer in a different direction to the 2 main struts. Some of the effects are reduced gear stress levels, fewer braking and thrust requirements, and less wear and tear on the tires in tight turns.

One of the best examples how the main gear of the 747 is able to turn its outer wheels during turning.
