Ya Blitz is right, you'll be fine as long as their close ratios and you're not driving around on the street in 4WD.

I don't see any reason to be in 4WD in the rain, Sporty's don't have enough power to break loose even if you try!

The tire tread depth and circumference issues have more to do with AWD low tolerance transfer cases that engage all the time.

With that said, same tire size, tread design & depth is still the best way to go.

Just my 69 cents
