Default HELP!Question about using ONE different tire

I ran into a problem with my right rear tire; i currently have a used no name tire on there for the mean time.

Im wondering if running a tire with a different thread is bad for the rear differential or if i might com across any other problems? Any input would be appreciated!

that cheap tire is going to have less traction than the others might cause some issuses when it rains or snows hope its the same size or you will have problems awd cars have to have all tires the same size

I'd run it up front because of the open diff and only as a temporary fix until you get matching tires.
