Default Running different brands front vs backs. Ok to do?

Sorry for asking yet another question but is it ok to run two different brands of tires? I was looking at buying Nexen N3000 on the front but was thinking of getting some Eagle GT's for the rears (kinda worried about slipping on the rears with the Nexens). As the rims are staggered I dont have to worry about rotating them.

Thanks,
Matthew

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

Are you just concerned with not having all four being the same brand or same exact product for that matter?

I run Kumhos on the fronts with Nittos on the rears. You will find it is more common than you may think.

No problem running different brands. As long as both the back ones are the same size, won't make a bit of difference.

I just wanted to know if its ok to run something like Nexen's (ony $85 and last long, but not the best in rain and snow) on the front two and Eagle GT's (very good grip but dont last as long and are like $200 each) are the back two without having any problems. I know very little about tires so I thought I would ask the questions now before getting boned later.

Thanks,
Matthew
