not recommended as the performance may be different due to different compounds and handling. Not only that, you are limited to the lowest speed and load ratings between the two sets.

It is not recommended. The F/R balance may be affected during a stop or maneuver. Definitely not different on the same axle. You also want to keep the rolling diameter the same. On an X-drive vehicle, new tires on the rear with worn ones on the front may have their rolling diameters out of spec, and that can affect the drive components and mess with the stability control as it may think a tire is slipping because they aren't rolling at the same rates.

I am about to buy either Pirelli P zeros or PremiumContact6 and the shop in Germany is listing them in both version Run Flat and Non RF.

My model has air suspension.
Easy. Non RF. Get Conti's. But def NON RF. Can't change a tire? Then buy a Rolls, with a driver.
