I'm going to import Alliance ATL and I'm 4 hours from it. Could I put the fwd fuse in my 1999 forester and drive there like that? Reason is because my rear tires rub the fenders on the the interstate (it's really ****** roads) and I wanted to put my old wheels on the rear for the ride there and change them out when I get there and change them back for the ride home. I'm running a 18x9.5 215 40 r18 in the front and will be running my old 18x8.5 205 40 r18 in the rear just for the ride there and back if I can. Any help will be greatly appreciated

@WadeSharpe21 I wouldn't recommend this as it's really meant for short periods running a spare or for diagnostic purposes. My owners manual says very little about it other than a mention of the warning light. My workshop manual only indicates use for diagnostics.

I "think", but am really not sure, that your power will be limited to the normal front split e.g. 60% and it seems a little power is still sent to the rear wheels. I also read it's not recommended for turbo models.

BTW
