The only reason I could think of why you would want to do that is to have the same size wheels back and front. Right? I don't see why not.

you can put them, but with problems.
They will rub everything you can only imagine, and furthermore, you couldn't make the turn of the steering till the end.

Btw, that's how it looks like, As for me, it's CRAP

if its on an older (450) smart fortwo then NO you cant...as the offsets are all wrong, the wheels will stick out too far and you will not be able to turn the wheels, sorry!

If however you have a 451, then you can as the wheels are all same offsets.
