You should always have a matching set of rubber on all corners. Every tyre/brand/variant has a natural characteristic.
If you find yourself in an emergency situation either end could break away depending on road conditions if you have mismatched tyres.
As an example in France they tend to fit two winter tyres only to the predominantly front wheel drive cars. When I was working there in 2010 and we had that lovely snow there were loads of accidents where cars spun as the frontend held and the rear spun round.
