I got a new LSD about a month ago & i got a flat tyre, so i drove on a 15" & 17" on the rear for about 100ks...will this f**k up my diff???...i thought it may have just slightly worn one of the cones more than the other but it doesnt seem to be very tight anymore :(

I've been told it's a BIG no no for LSD centers.. What were the tyre sizes on both the 15 and the 17?

depends on the overall tyre radius, not the rim size. but it would be a no no for the lsd as it spins one axle against the other(though this happens at cornering, so its not like its that big). Id definately be trying to get off my spare asap. And i thought lsds generally only had the single cone or single clutch pack? Just to stop the shafts from spinning at different speeds.

More you drive on it the quicker the LSD will wear and the less it will work.

But it is all to do with the rolling diameter.

yeah man this definelty fuks up the diff. cause the side that has the 15 on it will be the one that get the power done. so if you spin the tyres the one with the 17 will take a while to kick in and where out da cogs
