Replace a blown tire with a different brand on a rear axle

Hi Guys,

I had one blown tire in the back and could not find the matching brand, Nexen N5000 Plus Tire - 215/45R17 87H to replace it.

I ended up buying a used tire which has the same tread life left compare to other 3 tires but the brand is different, General Tire Altimax HP - 215/45R17 87H.

Below are the specs of each brand which are almost identical, however the treads are different looking.

Nexen N5000 215/45R17 Tire Specs
Size Diameter Width Tread Depth Tread Width Rim Range Max Load Max psi Weight Revs/Mile
215/45R17 24.65" 8.5" 10/32" NA 7-8" 1201 lbs 44 psi NA 819

General Altimax HP 215/45R17 Tire Specs
Size Diameter Width Tread Depth Tread Width Rim Range Max Load Max psi Weight Revs/Mile
215/45R17 24.6" 8.5" 10/32" NA 7-8" 1201 lbs 51 psi 19 lbs 839

Do you think the replacement tire will cause any issues or it was a bad idea of buying this tire as a replacement for my Hyundai Elantra 2012 Limited?
