Has anyone tried using 2 of the EMT's with 2 of the Goodyear GS D3's? My EMT's on back are still half tread but I need new fronts and would like to switch over to the D3's for better comfort. Tire rack said you could not do it. Handling is vastly impaired they said. Does anyone know this to be so? Thanks

Handling is very different between the two tires. Driving at a performance level, you could have problems. Driving at normal speed you won't. The diff. tires react differently. I would just go out tonight to the nearest parking lot and have some fun and tear the tires apart, down to nothing. Them tom. go buy 2 new ones. Make sure you take pics.
