Thoughts on going for different brand tires for front vs rear (till rear tires are due for replacement) ?

Hi there,

I am a 2018 X 100D owner from PA and my OEM Contis on the front seem worn out and are due for replacement after 20K miles. Though I haven't specifically measured the tread wear but the rear ones seem good to last for atleast another 5 to 10K miles or so. I am looking to replace just the front with all season tires for now and after reading some reviews here am inclining towards going in for Scorpion Zero AS plus as my priorities are tread wear comfort and noise.

Can I go in for a combination of Scorpions in the front for a few thousand miles till the OEM Contis in the rear are due for replacement ? Any thoughts on going for Scorpion Verde v/s Scorpion Zero AS plus ?

Are there are any recommendations for non Tesla tire installers in the greater Philly area if I decide to order tires from Tirerack ?
