Evan,
if your 4 tires aren`t the correct size (as indicated in your owner`s manual), same brand and tread you will have in the future a serious deterioration and failure of your transfer case. (believe me you don`t want this to happen)
Regarding the transfer case oil, check it out and see if the color is like coke. If so change it. The shudder problem you have is generally related to a degraded transfer case oil and should be changed every 90.000km. At least this is what happened in my case. I changed the oil and the shuddering practically disappeared.
