Different size spare will I be ok

I have roughly a 4 hour drive to get my new tires installed will I be ok running a 235 on the passenger rear when my other tires are 285? I have read some places say its ok others not depending on size diff or rear axle.

What they said...

And you only gave the tire width anyways....It's the height difference that jacks up the diff.

+1 with the above posts. Driving to the local shop is one thing....4 hours isn't smart.
