you will

no doubt

be needing a new center differential as the one you have is or will fail soon

you can NOT run 2 different size tires or it WILL destroy something---usually the center diff

I didn't even know 225/30-18 tires existed. Are you sure that's the size? Maybe a 225/35-18?

Either way. You mega failed. You can't run two different size tires or you'll ruin the center diff. Yours is probably already trash.

your tire diameter situation should be correct ASAP before it does major damage to the center diff
