Need help in a hurry please. I have Mickey Thompson P305/35R19 street s/s on the rear. On the front I have the stock Michelin p245/35zr19s pilot super sports. The other day had a flat due to the sidewall gap with rim. Plan to replace both front since the one is not repairable and tread is getting down.
Question is.... is it ok to put 2 new Michelin All Season on the front or should replace with the “performance” Pilot super sports?
One sticky point is that the all season tires have been ordered and received at the tire dealer. I’m sure I’ll have to pay a restocking fee to return the all seasons but more importantly don’t want to cause a safety issue either. PS I don’t track the car.
Thanks for your advice. Hawksnest.

Any manufacturer will tell you to stay with 4 same type tires for safety, it's not a ploy or a joke, it's real.

That being said, I see mixing and matching done all the time. It's your call and decision.

If you drive the car hard, you need Pilot Super Sports all the way around.

If you don't drive the car hard, it's ok to mix and match.
