2 Answers


is the vehicle 4wd? if so then yes can cause issues over time with transfer case and transmission.. if not then if you keep the same size tires on the drive axel it will be fine


DO NOT run different sized tires on a 4WD or AWD vehicle. This can cause serious wear issues with transfer case, front and rear differential, tires etc. You could get by on a vehicle that is shiftable between 2 and 4 wheel drive, but I would not recommend using the 4 wheel drive at all.
