Wider tires on the front

Besides not being able to rotate the tires. Are there any draw backs to running a wider tire on the front than the rear. I'd like to run 35x10.50's on the rear duals but then run a 35x12.50's on the front.

I don't think there will be any issue at all. MPG might suffer slightly but that is normal with bigger tires.

"quote from tank"
"I use baby wipes.....

Because if you think that a wadded up piece of paper is actually getting the chit off of your butt.....then I have to ask a question....

.....if you wiped a turd on your arm....would you just use a paper towel to get the turd off?.....or would you wash your arm?...

...let that thought roll around in your head for a moment...

" thank you tank for that insightful thought

I love that look. But the price is crazy.. It might be ok in the winter if I had skies on the front. It would be like a big dual track snowmobile.

I also thought about this on my welding rig truck. But decided against it after I thought about the rotation issue and the fact that wider tires are harder on front end parts. (bearings, hubs, ball joints, etc). I need reliability on that truck... I'd stay with a the same size, front and back.
