headscratch Flipping rear rims to use offset for widening?

I wondered if anyone has noticed that it is possible to flip your rear rims/tires around and use the existing offset to gain some width? I use to do that on a 350X three wheeler and it worked well. What could it hurt as long as the mud scrapers are removed so your valve stem doesn't get ripped off! Any thoughts on this?

I'd think that would widen it like 6 inches though. I already think the 10in 4:3 offset is too wide at times

Idt the valve steams would clear the a-arms, but idk for sure. Have you tried this? And like Jmm24 said it'd be like 53" wide then the front would be way narrower

I mounted them while it was jacked up and it looked like it would work clearance wise but I didn't leave it that way since I was loading on a trailer to head up to the sand dunes next week. I may test it out there and see how it works, it may really be too much like Jmm24 said. We will see...I know widening robs HP too.

A couple of members have done this , didn't seem to do any harm but you do have to reverse the steel insert in the rim that contacts the lug nut. Sorry for the bad description but not quite sure what to call them.
