Tire circumference and a Detroit locker

I have a 9 inch Ford rearend in my Chevelle with a Detroit Locker and Mickey Thompson ET Street tires, size 28x12.50x15 and with 20 lbs of air in them I measured the circumference, the left rear tire was 92 1/8 inches and the right tire was 91 3/8 inches , 3/4 of an inch difference. Will this cause any problems ?

circle track guys call that tire stagger and run the larger on the right side so they turn in better..Adjust the pressure so they are more equal and yes it is normal to have a slight variation in the tires..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
