Flotation tires???

Iím putting big fat flotation tires/rims on the front of my bus. Thanks to triple time this week at work Iím going nuts with aluminum wheels and new kicks for my house.
Iíve always planned on putting the big fat gnarly dump/cement truck wheels on the front. (Seems like busses like to sink their front wheels in stuff on occasion) Trying to hedge my bet off road and plus will look rad! lol

Has anybody already done this?

Iíve seen a dog nose with super singles in the back,and that was cool. But Iíll keep duals and put the fattys in the front.

Anyway, would just like to benefit from someone who has already done this,if possible.

Thanks in advance...

Never done that, so you can disregard what follows if you choose.

I was considering going that route on the rears on mine. The added cost along with the need to carry 2 spares, along with the hit in fuel mileage, changed my mind.
I still think it would look cool though.

Unless you go off road often and in areas with soft terrain the extra wear and tear on front end parts, as well as tire wear, your fuel mileage will also tank, pun intended.

They would look cool though!
