Default One side Rota's & the other side stock rims, Can I drive?

Typically town fair tire screwed up and what else is new. They torqued the lugs on one side of the car way too tight for me to loosen. I already changed to stock on the drivers side but the passengers side has the 17" Rota's on.

Question is "Is it Ok to drive to town fair tire which is 5-10 miles away with 2 diff wheels on either side?

get a tape measure out, take off the wheels(or jack the car up to get teh wheel up), and measure the circumferences around teh center of teh tyres. if the measurements at the proper pressure are within a 1/2" of each other, ur good to go.

u'll get more variance in the same set of tyres if one is 10 psi less than another allowing it to deform and the sidewalls bow.

^^^^^

I'd rather put the Rotas back on than take the chance... 1/2" isn't much.

Thanks for the advice guys. Late last night I put the Rota's back on and I will have a shop take off those lugs. I am not going to risk driving and messing up the Diff.

Another questions though. Does it matter if I use the splinedrive lugs on the stock wheels or should i use the stock lugs? Does it matter?

Splinedrives are fine for stock wheels, but they stick out too far so they don't look right.
