yeah, at least its the back. I've run 5 out of 8 on my old 73 Ford for a long time. Just didnt drive it as much as I do the Jeep. As long as my wheel dont pass me down the road, I'll be ok

I've been running four lugs on my driver's side rear for about a year now. (I need to fix that!) Just make sure the others are tight.....
