    Sorry if this has been asked before but my front tyres are needing replaced and I've been looking at Michelin cross climates as they seem to get a good write up. However, my back tyres are just general summer tyres with 6mm of tread still on them.

    Would I be safe to put x-climate on the front and keep the summer ones on the back since they are still a decent condition?

    thanks

    Yes.
    Unless you like chucking it into corners to explore the car's limits you won't notice the difference.

    I would be tempted to put the summers on the front and wear them down with the cross climates in the rear then get a matching set up front.
    It’s much easier to control understeer than over steer.
    When you have grippier tyre up front there will be a tendency to trust the grip till you turn and the back swings out cause there’s less grip behind. More so a problem in the winter colder months than in the warmer months.

    Check out 'Bridgestone weather control A005' all season tyres, they get good reviews as well.

    As for mixing!!! Do a few Google and YouTube searches on the subject. Personally I'd keep all 4 the same and sell the 6mm rears as part worns.
