Rim Inversion

I just bought a Benz B200 and the tranny went within weeks, so I'm back in black w the old Sunfire. And my inner Mad Max noticed while swapping a hub that if I put my tire on inverted, while it may need some adjusting to sit right, would look badass budget style if I did it on the back.

LEGAL ISSUES:
1. Is there anything strictly against this in Ontario?
2. Do I need mudflaps if it protrudes beyond the car body?

I've had so much car bs lately, don't tell me I can't ghettoize my car, please..

I'm not so up on the legal implications, but, mounting your rims/wheels the other way round will affect your offset and scrub radius relationship.

Such will impact how the car handles, reacting to steering inputs, etc. Kind of like adding spacers beyond a certain width.
