Uhhh.. What's going on here?
I would consider moving it maybe 10ft like that and only on level ground. Looks tippy!
If the wheels were mounted outwards I might consider moving down the street at low speed.

Trying to save some dollar bills on new tires? haha

If you'r wanting to do that, I'd look into super singles for the rear...

Also, Not sure on the legalities of running like this... you may want to check with you local DOT

It would be less scary if the wheels were flipped around so that the wheel base is wider. You would have to make sure the tires are in good condition and the load capacity of the tire is not exceeded. Also check that the wheel studs are threaded close enough to the hub so that the nuts can be properly torqued. In our area many people single out the rear axle on dually pickups for winter. Keep in mind a pickup does have alot less weight on the rear axle if it is not towing than a bus.

If you have less than twice the single tire max weight on the rear axle you could do that if you flip the rims around so the tires are on the outside, but be aware that it wears out the wheel bearing much faster due to the asymmetric load on the bearings
