kill the diff?

ok i have the little wrangler stock tire on the back as a spare but since i have 31's and its a 27 or 29 i think wouldn't it screw up the diff if i used it? I don't plan on useing it but my dad wants me to fix it up and make it hold air just in case. (Later in the summer im gonna get 5 new tires when i can afford it)

But it would still be a good idea to look into a fullsize spare.
