    What you gonna do when it's time for rotation? After, say, 3 or 5 K miles?
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    You could achieve this by using wheel spacers, but I would not recommend it. You would be completely messing up the handling of your car. Not a good idea on an all wheel drive vehicle.

    Not a good idea. Your differentials will be screaming at you.
