80/20 front with 50/50 rear

Has anybody run a 80/20 front tire while have a 50/50 rear on? I may have to do this for a short time and wondering if the front will limit me all that much in the loose gravel and mud.

I don't think you would want to do it. Going the opposite (50/50 F & 80/20 R) is not uncommon. My concern would be having the front wash out on you while the rear stays hooked up.

Thanks for the info, Steve. I didn't know that going the opposite way might be beneficial but it makes perfect sense.
