1996 993 Mixing Bridgestone Potenza S-02 & S-02A

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 1996; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 60K;

I have a question about mixing Bridgestone Potenza S-02 and S-02A's on a '96 993. I had my local dealer replace my aging Dunlop SP 8000's with Bridgestone Potenza S-02's. I recently noticed a difference between the front and rear model types. Details as follows: Front: 205/50ZR17, type S-02A, N4 Rear: 255/40ZR17, type S-02, N3Do you know if there is a significant difference between the S-02 and S-02A model types? I track the car and am concerned about an improper mis-match that would negatively affect the handling characteristics.I recall that the dealer only had one pair of tires in stock at the time, and had to order the second pair anew.I know you receive a great deal of inquiries regarding tire recommendations but I was unable to locate an existing answer to my concern.
