    Will a Front Wheel Mount on the Rear?

    Will a front wheel fit on the rear and clear the caliper.

    I have a front Hankook Ventus V12 with a bubble on the sidewall.
    I purchased a replacement tire because they said I hit a pot hole and damaged the tire.
    The tire only has about 5k miles on it and I can't see throwing it away.
    I was thinking about buying a front rim (or a whole set of chrome ones) and using the wheel as a spare.
    I figure I have a 50/50 chance of blowing out a front tire but you know how Murphy's Law works.

    You won't want to run 2 different size tire combinations on either side of a limited slip differential. Keep it for the front if you must, but I wouldn't use it on the rear.

    Better bet would be to get the temporary plug kits (they run under $10), and an air compressor to fix a flat. Won't help with a blowout though. I've used the plugs with great results before - just make sure you have it properly fixed when you can.

    Great idea!!
    Leaving on Thursday for Watkins Glen, NY. I don't want to get stuck on the way out, the way back or on the race track on Saturday.
    I will pick up a compressor and plug kit tomorrow.

    Thank you,
    Charlie
