If the wheels are staggered and have a different rolling diameter that is semi noticeable, then this could be your transfer case (4x4) acting up. X-DRIVE vehicles require all wheels to have the same rolling diameter or else hell will break lose in the car and your wallet.

If you've got same rolling diameter front and back then there shouldn't be any harm

Also no harm to the car in turning DTC off

Not sure why the new wheels are giving you problems if they're the right size...check the tread depth on them...maybe they have uneven wear on the tires?
