Hello I will help,

Yes the difference in tire circumference will cause the computer to sense the different wheel speeds so it will not allow 4x4 operation to protect the transfer case. The different wheel speeds will cause the case to be damaged.

Get the same size on both ends and the problem will be resolved.

Please let me know if you have further questions. If nothing further please complete the rating

Thanks

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
