Obviously not. If they're within 2-3%, it won't hurt anything, though, because it's within manufacturing deviation.

Unfortunately, 3.25 is a far shot from 3.08. Of course, if I wanted to do it that way, I could compensate for the difference in axles by using different sized tires between the two axles.
