has anyone ever seen or built a truck with duals on the front and back. Also if so would it be street legal?

Yes have seen a couple and had a hand in building one. OFF ROAD use ONLY in our case. Just build for a mud truck. No way to really use the front fenders at all due to lack of turning radius with dual wheels.

We had to used narrow 7.00x16 mud tires on all 8 wheels. Really easy, just found 2 more dual wheels and bolted right on just like the rear.

To be street legal would be upto your local DMV and what the title shows. Never seen a law about not being able to run dual wheels on the front, I know some stated make you have some sort of fenders and mudflaps are almost a must with all dual wheels.

Why would you want something like that?...The rolling resistance would cause horrendous fuel mileage...
