No, all 4 tires must match, both in tire size and brand of tire, if you don't you run the risk of serious damage to the transfercase and could cause the ABS light to turn on due to rotation differance between wheels.

4 wheel drives need all tires to match same as all wheel drives

Are you asking about changing all 4 to the new size or just 1 tire this different size and leave 3 on of the original size?

No on all accounts as discussed, even if changing all 4.

As long as the 4 are the same manufacture and the same size you won't damage the transfer case, however you may notice that you speed and odometer might read slightly faster than your actual speed as you will be dropping 1 size in diameter. If this bothers you, it can be recalabrated.
