You might be able to do it if you add a pusher axle and change your steering arms on your front axle to keep the Ackerman angle correct for the wheel base. Changing wheel bases that much can really affect steering angles and control.
poor tire wear is a result of a mismatch.
It would probably be best to not do it!
If you got the money to do all that I would suggest to go buy a new one!
Doing right or wrong will cost you!
