4 inch pads & 3 inch backing plate ?

As I have just sold my das 6 and replaced with a Vertool forced drive I needed something for smaller areas so picked up a Shinemate EP803.
Before the machine upgrades I purchased some Lake Country hydrotech pads some of which are 4 inch, I’m guessing I will be ok using the 4 inch pads with the 3 inch backing plate on the shinemate or will it have any adverse affects ?
Is it worth purchasing a 3.5 inch rotory backing plate.

It should be fine, but the EP803 kit should come with a 4" backing plate i thought. BTW the EP803 is a great bit of kit. Iv got one aswell. Only used it twice so far but its done a cracking job of polishing up some headlights.
