Hi yang,

Based on the tire sizes, they are different by 1.5 ins in diameter but ie when tires are new. Used/worn tires would be different.

Difference is not much and theologically it can be applied, but the threads and surface contact are different so braking efficiency would be different.

I would not advise using it, only as a temporary measure as if you are using a spare tires.

It you must use it, make both front tires same, put the different tires at rear left.
