With the vast amount of knowledge available on this board I figured that I would give this question a shot.
I have a 1998 All wheel drive Chevy Astro van. Thursday I blew a front tire so I had two new front put on today, Here is the problem They mounted 215/75/15 on the front the back has 215/70/15 on. On the way home it was driving real hard and the rearend and transfer case got really hot as a matter of fact gear lube was forced out of the transfer case. I realize thaat the cause was different diameter tires. Did I do permanent damage or just blew lube from a vent? I called them and they said to bring it back but I don't think that I should drive it that far (40 miles) Anyone have any suggestions on how I should proceed? This is a chain wearhouse store that sells tires. The manager that I talked to said that "he" didn't think that it would cause permanant damage. How do I go about establishing their responsibility in this? And any subsequent damage if I do drive it back
