Do you know if the spare wheels are to counter balance the front weight?

I'm sure it helps. Front engine layout is not the best because landing from jumps on your nose can hurt. Rear engine buggies make better jumpers.

I have been lucky and got to work the pits for the Baja 1k a handful of times.

The tires are mainly to get you to the next pits if you have a flat. I know that sounds dumb but....

We were 50 miles away from the next pit, an on the race course, that was just 1.5 hrs away for most of the racers. Longer if you have a flat!
