Dual FRONT wheels?

Me and a buddy were just talking. They just got back from the beach and we discussed how my dually would do out there and decided that the DRW would be good since it spread the weight out.
However, the front may just plow the sand since it's so heavy on just two tires. That's when I got the bright idea
Have two spare rims/tires that you can put on the front for beach/sand driving. Now, I know that steering would be an issue, but besides that, what do you think? Anyone been dumb enough to try it?
I'm not thinking of this as it's the best thing, I just think it's awesome cause it's different.

Ive put dually wheels on the front of a maxipad before. It was cool for like five minutes and then not being able to turn got old. But i like the idea, it would work i think

Seen a couple of Dodge's set up like that. Couldn't turn to save their life.

What I would recommend, is get a normal set of front rims large enough to run a wide (14" or wider) tire, and see how that goes.

I've seen it done before, and it sounds good in theory... I would think it would work, except for the whole turning thing.

Man, more popular than I though. That's probably a bad thing.
Yea I figured turning would be an issue. A lift and spacer would be a must I'm sure.
I think the floatation type tires would look sweet on the front of a DRW. Just have to justify the use of them.
