All four tyres must be identical - same make, same model, same size same tread depth with a 2mm variance permissible on the same axle and 3mm variance between front and rear axles.

Until you sort it all out, do not exceed 50 mph / 80 kph [same as the spacesaver spare] otherwise you will burn out the clutches in the gearbox.

It's not just don't exceed that speed, it's also do not exceed the maximal distance at less than that speed. I'm not sure the ruling on ours but it's usually 50 mph for 50 miles. Even at 25mph if you do this for too long you'll still overheat/destroy differentials.

Tires are nominal sizes and can vary in OD by quite bit, even different models of the same size from the same tire manufacturer, so you cannot use those dimensions.

Stick to 4 IDENTICAL wheels and tires at all times or you might well be looking at a new gearbox.
