First of all, you probably won't notice unless you put it on a track or auto-X course. The dunlops will be quieter and will be noticeable especially since they will be on the front. Tirerack suggests that you maintain the same LEVEL of tire (i.e. Max Performance, High performance, all season, etc.) on the front and back. The car might be awkward if you put the dunlops on the left and the mich's on the right but keeping them front and back should be ok. Now you might say, "But I do track my car, or at least drive it aggressively on the street". To that I say, well, your gonna wear out the rear tires pretty fast then. By then the fronts will still have tons of tread left, and you can replace the rears with dunlops just like the fronts.

(50k+ miles of happy dunlop driving:)
