of different brands front/rear. Pros/cons; yes/no, and why or why not. Thanks.

I sometimes use a longer wearing tire in the back like a Cont Ultra 2000 and a Mich Axial Pro Up front for better cornering and comfort. You can get the rear to get loose before the front like this, but not really a big problem unless you are really pushing it in the corners in a crit race. It would be a disaster to have the front loose traction before the rear though.
