Can you run 35/13.5R20LT and 35/12.5R20?

I just stuck a giant nail in my driver's side back tire. A guy on Craigslist is selling a 35 x 13.5 R 20 LT tire that is the same make and model as my tires, but the size is slightly different. All of my tires are 35 x 12.5 R 20. Is there going to be a problem replacing just one of the tires with a 13.5 and not a 12.5?

It's going to have to last at least a year before I can replace them all with 38.5s.

I don;t THINK the different width will cause an issue. I know a different overall diameter is what primarily causes the differential issues

I don't think it would make a difference like said, but why not just get it patched or pulled instead of buying a different tire?

I don't think the patch would hold up too well. It's a F350, and I'll be towing quite a bit. Summer's here and it's boating season. I don't want a blowout.

IMO, why take the risk of buying that 13.5" tire? Your only going to save $150 or so right?

Where I am from, there are plenty of used tire places. And 35x12.5R20 is a very common tire size....

It's been near impossible to find a perfect match around here. I'm literally about to drive 2 hours to save $300.

Tires are a safety item, not an item of convenience. Make the safe choice, not the cheap one.

I agree. That's why I'm asking if this is safe?

I have never seen it done with 2 different widths on the back i have seen wider tires in back then in the front. What usually is the bad is the size if one is taller then the other it wont run right (it will do down the road fine) and will end up tearing the rear axle up due to each tire having different revolutions

What this guy said. If anything, replace both rears with the wider tires, just in case the height is different. Even though it shouldn't be. Plus it would look better..
