    different tires

    The subtle differences in profile are designed to work best as a pair. I've seen plenty of folks riding with different tires from front to back.

    I would say it will effect how your biek handles.... adversely maybe? you are gonna be the judge of that when you are on it.

    I don't plan on mixing.

    I have no idea about the tires you have, but most problems that arise from running two different tires is when the compounds arent the same. If your front warms up a lot quicker than the rear, or the other way around, thats when bad things happen. If the only differences between the two tires is the profile, i wouldnt worry about it at all.

    If the label on the side is the same on both tires!

    The power and sport are close enough that you won't have any problems.
