Just wondering if anyone has done this or is it just a bad idea ready........ ok if I put a set of rear wheels on the front of my fourtrax and a set of spacers to make my rear wheels stick out a little wider to match the new front wheels, would this change how the machine turns, would the ride be better or worse I have a parts quad that I will restore someday and it has a set of stock rear wheels with bad tires so before I go through the trouble of putting tires on these wheels I wanted to see if this would make a difference with anything at all:smile

I ran rears on the front of my 300 for months before I bought spacers, made it a little harder to steer as the tyres were wider, other than that it rode and handled fine. I didn’t think it looked that bad but then I’m not overly fussy about things like that, it serves a purpose and that was that.

thanks guys the reason I was asking my back is not the greatest so I wasn't sure if doing this would help it steer a little better, because I know if I ride it a lot my back may not handle it real well, but its worth it the thing is fun to ride on
This is one of my first 4 wheel atvs I have always had 3 wheelers

i have back issues as well, you might think about bumping air pressure up JUST on the front tires i bumped my fronts up (fourtrax300 fwd) that's helped my back issues.
