RBK Tri Di chassis question

So I just bought a pair of RBK 4K skates, they're nice, and I looked online and I'm definitely happy with my purchase. My question is I've been a fan of Mission's Hi-Lo chassis. The Tri di uses a 72-76-76-80 wheel size setup. Does anyone know if the Tri di can use the hi-lo(72-72-80-80) wheel setup?

My fiance uses the CCM tri-Di that came with the 72-76-76-80(i think the same chassis since ccm=rbk?) and she switched to 72-78-80-80 which made it comparable to my Bauer one-up system(72-72-80-78) and gave her a more agressive forward stance and better maneuverability in tight turns. You cannot put a 72 in the second position on a tri-di or it will never touch the ground even with a 76 in the 3rd and especially with an 80 in the 3rd.

I noticed when trying them on that all 4 wheels never touched the ground at the same time. I find that kind of weird, so I might switch them around when I can afford it or when I start breaking wheels.

That's ok. On my Bauer One-Ups either the front 3 touch or the back 2 touch when standing straight. When I turn and lay the blade down, all wheels contact the surface.
