I hope your question does not invoke a competition but...

I had a rear blow out coming out of Blythe CA and drove unknowingly to Indio CA at 60 mph. (about 100 miles)
My tires were only 4 years old, but had a few cracks from improper storage by PO. I heard a loud noise from the rear and asked DW to check. She found a jar of peanut butter had fallen into the sink. I thought that was it, but while driving I noticed quite a bit of vibration at speed. Since we had just crossed the AZ border I blamed it on bad CA roads. Pulled into a rest area in Indio and found the right outer rear tire had zippered but the tread didn't fly apart. Can't believe it only broke one side clearance light!
In answer to your question can you drive on 3 rears? Maybe.
As others have already proven on this thread, why press your luck. If you know you have a problem call roadside assistance.
(all seven tires have since been replaced)
