yes you can, but make sure whatever axle you are running the smaller spare on is an open differential. If you have full time lockers then no you want the same size spare. Now that minor of a size maybe okay if you have lockers and are driving on softer surfaces for a short distance.

For instance if you have a fulltime rear locker, and get a rear flat, then you'ld have to take a fullsize off the front and put on rear, then put smaller one up front.
