Different types of tires

E90 is rear wheel drive car.

Can I put the different types of tires?

I mean if I put all season tire for front

and put summer high performance tire for rear.

Do you think it would look silly? or any problems?

Because the tuning shop that I use to go have only those different tires now.

Please answer me ASAP!

I think you shouldn't do it. Might change te balance of the car. I mean, you would have completely different style of tires in your car.
Performance tires are more grippy on tarmac so it would be tricky ride.

don't do it. If you are going to mix and match tires atleast have them comparable. But the grip between summer tires and all seasons is very different and you don't want to get into trouble if you start driving a bit faster. And if you do mix-match tires, always keep the same exact tire on the same axle.
