They added a press in metal collar to the front hubs which makes the center bore of the rear wheels too small to fit. I think the only reason they did that was because the rear wheels are too wide to physically fit on the front . . . . the wheel hits the strut tube and it couldn't rotate if you bolted it on. With the possibility of a high school dropout mounting your tires, they needed to make this as idiot proof as possible, hence the obviously added collar - If you remove that collar (easy to do - They pull right out) you can put a wheel with the same center bore as the rears on the front - I've done that. I've never tried it, but you should have no problem putting a front wheel on the rear - The front wheels have a larger center bore than the rears, so that shouldn't present any problem
I don't see why anyone would want to do that though - The front wheels/tires are pretty miniscule for a vehicle with a 3,300 lb GVWR, IMO. I'm not too happy with two 145/65R15 tires, let alone four
