Default silly tire question

Could I put aggresive mudders in the rear possibly 31s and run my 29sbfg a/t in the front? Or would that be stupid looking and useless?

Or stay the same size but throw m/t in the rear? I guess my reasoning is the 850$ versus the 400$ that's a week of work for 2 more tires.

When I was in high school, guys did that all the time to save money, I don't see why it wouldn't work, as for looks... Well.... Itll look a little cheap, but that's all

As long as you don't run them on your 4x4 !

I guess you are thinking of doing this to your 2wd Ranger?
It would look ghetto, but it would be OK.

Very bad news! Your engine wants to turn all of your tires at the same time, and if you put different size tires on the front and on the back, they won't turn the same. It will cause damage almost immediately.

eh, dont do it. it will look terrible. Larger tires in the rear are for the lowered, drag type trucks, with big slicks.
