    Rim? You betcha. I suspect you in fact mean the entire wheel, and in that case, no. Different spacing.

    Ride your bike backwards. Instant front rim.

    My, that's an awful lot of capital letters, my friend!

    Your answer has already been posted, but yes, the rim can be changed but not the hub.
