tires one at a time?

ok so here is the deal, i have a 91 mustang and i'm putting a 351w in it eventually

but now i have 4 lug patterns with a small 7.5 rear end,
i have the spindles and brakes and hubs from a 97 mustang, they bolt right on to the old struts and now i'll have bigger brakes, sealed hubs and 5 lug patterns on the front

I will obviously have to get new wheels because of the lug change, and i dont have a different rear end yet,

does anyone see a problem with only changing the front 2 tires and wheels (for about a month or two, daily driven) until i get a rear and the correct setup for the back?
i will be having the front aligned and the tires will be a little less wide than stock, will be the same size/height tho

thanks

Brendn

Mr. Murphy would warn you that as soon as you do that you will get a flat tire with the bolt pattern that you don't have on the spare. I would carry 2 spare tires for those few months.
