Default Running non-matching spare wheel/tire?

Would I potentially endanger my differentials if I used a non-matching wheel/tire combo as a spare?

For example: I have Tarmac 2's w/Falken RT-615s 235/40/17 on my car and was thinking about picking up a STi rim with a random 235/40/17 tire on it as a full-size spare. Let's say I have a flat and put the STi rim on......Am I going to ruin the mechanical bits by running one non-matching tire & wheel?
