Hey folks. Ran over 3 nails and had a single tire F'ed beyond repair. I was blocks from some local tire place and bought the only 245/45 20 they had in the shop.

So now I have 3 conti extreme contact DWS06's with about 25000 miles on them, and a new/fine but rando tire on passenger rear.
Obviously this isn't ideal as far as performance and not the long term plan, but in the short term, am i stressing the PTU/ rear diff because of the size differential because of wear? Trying to decide if i need to go ahead and buy a new set this weekend.

Not gonna say its good or bad but will let you know that my SHO had a brand new tire (same brand/ref as the others) at the front when I bought it. 3.5 years later, tires are due for replacement and (knock on wood), no PTU issues.
Used to have a Sienna AWD in which I once replaced one tire after hitting a pothole. Never had any issues
