I see that the rolling diameter of the front is 25.8, the rear is 26.3 and most of these spares are coming in at 26. Would that put much strain on the diff?
IMO, it would not. Differentials are made for extensive cornering, which is essentially what you are doing with two different diameters. The advantage of the space saver spare on compact wheel is it takes up less space in the trunk and may weigh a few pounds less.
