Don't use the 4WD if you mix different sized tires as you will damage your transfer case and it will be very difficult to drive because you will either be dragging the rear tires or plowing with the front tires all depending on where you put those smaller tires.

No, on any 4WD or AWD the tires must match on all 4 wheels. Expensive things start breaking if they are not.
