NISMO rear wheels on the front

Any one tried this yet? I have a extra set of fender and fiberglass... 1.2 inch wider on the fender looks easy enough.

I'm pretty sure the hubs are made so that you can't do this. That's why Nismo's can't put bolt on spacers on the front.

This prevents people from fitting the rear wheels on the front. If you have aftermarket wheels this is usually not a problem since the manufacturers account for this.

You can remove the nut and they'll fit, a guy in Birmingham runs 10.5 rears all around no problem

yah, that stud is just screwed on and as long as the spoke clears the calipers should fit fine. not sure how it induces tramlining though.

but the other comment about bolt-on spacers.. if the stock studs are not hitting the back of the wheel disc u can use bolt-on spacers. or u can even grind the stock ones shorter if ure really committed to that wheel.

It's been done a few times. Running the rears on the front, and using spacers on the rear to bring it out to match. All you have to do is remove the bolt on the front hub. You have to do it anyway with aftermarket rims too. Most do not account for the bolt.
