So i put my donut on while im awaiting the tire place to order me a tire that has about the same tread left on as the other tires(il have it in less then a week) I was just wondering with having awd will the donut mess anything up? like my transmission or anything like that?

I know only replacing tires in sets of 2 is bad for AWD cars because the small difference in the circumference of the tire (Even though it is small) is harmful to the differentials. I would imagine a doughnut is much worse. I would use it to get the car to where it needs to be, and keep from driving it.

Take it with a grain of salt because I dont know much about these drivetrains.
