    8\" Front 10\" Rear?

    Would it be ok to use 8" wide wheels on the front axle, and 10" wide wheels on the rear one? any advantages and/or drawbacks?
    Thanx

    Yes it will work fine. My truck was like that for awhile.

    It was my understanding that by placing same sized tires on two different width rims, the tires on the skinnier rims will be slightly taller. Is this true & will it affect it in 4x4? I'm sure there are much smarter people out there who would know. And that's all I got to say about that!!
