    They are only tapered on 1 side i believe. Plus it will look retarded. If not overwidth

    You can probably find a pic if you search google, of someone that's done this. I flipped my 15.5's (rears), I think it helps stability a little, also the rears are in-line with the front after they're flipped.

    Before and after:

    First pic was when I was first putting them on.

    It should be noted I have 50-50 offset wheels, so, your opinion may vary with what the wheels look like.

    Not so much a signature as a cry for help.

    Sure is. All my trucks 2/12- 5 ton are done that way.

    Should have been like that in the first place for an off-road combat vehicle.
