Three years ago I purchased 4 yoka p205/65HR15 for my 1993 Maxima.

A year and a half later (3/2002) I returned to the same dealer to purchase 2 front tires for the maxima. At that time the tech noticed that one of my rear tires was different. 215/6515 I was told that they would replace the tire with no extra fee. I also paid to have my car aligned & lifetime wheel balance.

On November 5, 2003 (year & a half later)(10,000 mi) I returned to the same dealer to have my tires rotated. Once again I was told that another error was made. The same rear tire was replaced with a 205/6015. And again they corrected their error.

My question is, can driving for three yrs, 24000 miles with a differnt size rear tire cause any damage to my car? Brakes? ect. Could it have contributed to the uneven front tire wear?
