I disagree with the post below...in my experience mixing tires DOES make a difference. The Dunlops are good tires, but not "ULTRA" performance tires like the Michelins. The Michelins will have a stiffer sidewall than the Dunlops, which will make the rear bite in in the corners, but your front end will feel soggy. I did the reverse...I still have the original MXX3's on the front, and put Bridgestone Potenza SO-2's on the rear, and the car handled way funny, like the rear would kinda float around a little on the corners.
