Reverse wheel question

Hi,

Tonight while playing around with the XX on the lift I added 2" wheel spacers front & back. Then I noticed that I could flip the rear & front wheels over to widen it even more. So I took my left wheels & tires & put them on the right side, did the same with the right wheels & tire & put them on the left side. It's now insanely wide but I don't know if I can ride it like that. There's absolutely no issue for the valve clearance. I remember doing this process before on my 400ex front wheels, you basically just had to put your valve on the inside of the rim & flip them from left to right, old school !!!!!! Anyone else did this with there XX with the stock rims might I add. I'm interested to see your responses !!!!!

Thanks.

good chance you'll bend your steering rods at the first impact if you turn your fronts

I don't know how wide it sits right now because it's still on the lift right now. I'll measure it when off the lift & post a picture. I won't ride it like that for sure because it's way to wide, I'm thinking it will be close to 60 inchs on the ground !!!! I just wanted to know if anybody else had tried this !!!!

Regards.

I flipped my rears and ran them like that for a while. The extra width helps but it's a little hard on the stock rims. Just buy some Itp t-9 rims in 10in and do it right if you still need more width.

23" GBC XC Master tires up front
ITP T-9 rims rear GBX X-REX 22-11-10 rear
Douglas red label rear rims with 25" swamp lite tires
8000k Hid lights, 13/14/15tooth sprokets
Removed reverse rev limiter
Ds450 shock swap
EHS fuel programmer
Big Gun EVO R slip on

I reversed them back & with the 2" wheel spacers it gives me 49" total so that's fine with me. Like I said I was just playing around.

Don't ever flip the fronts even without spacers. You gunna be in a world of pain. I still have a wound from running 2:3 front rims. This maybe the cheaper option but spacers on the front , will hurt. You'll not gain anything running them.Even with top of the line front shocks.
