I was looking at the JD parts manual and from what I see the front / rear wheels are not the same. Is this true?

The description shows front 12x7 and the rear 12x8.

the tires for the Rear are much wider..I had to buy 2 front aluminum wheels and tires to mount on the rear of my Gator so I could load mine in my truck Bed..

Wow. I never would have expected the Gator to fit on the back of a Dodge Ram. If I get a spare wheel/tire, I guess it should be a front.

I realized the Maxxis Big Horns are 14-in tires so I had the p/n's wrong.

I assume the rear tires are wider for load carrying and could help handling. Any downside to using a front on the rear as a temporary spare?
