Default FWD tire question

I have a non-Scooby tire question.

I have 4 Toyo T1s that I want to give to a freind for her Mazda 3. One tire has more tread than the others. it's enough of a difference that I wouldn't run them on an AWD car (unless it was shaved to match).

Since her car is a FWD car would the tread difference cause a problem if they were mounted on the rear tires?

Cool. It is a decent little car and probably would have handled fine if I would have ponied up for winter tires after I smoked the crappy stock ones, but I got a WRX instead, problem solved
