What about putting the new ones on front and not rotating until they get "closer" to the similar wear?
Having the better set on the rear is more important in low-traction situations. Done with snow up there? (sorta recall you being in Canada)
Also traction difference between bald tires vs. 1/2-gone tires is severe. Traction difference between 1/2-gone vs. almost new is much less severe.
I don't know what the behavior will be comparing between:
- Dunlop on front & Michelin on rear
- Michelin on front & Dunlop on rear
Slip ratios are probably different even when they're worn about the same.
