    I'd change both as they will be so far apart in grip to the wear. Of course this is my opinion and counts for nothing!!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I think, the old tyre will affect how the new tyre runs in, grips,wears.
    Having different makes on the front is also not a great idea I think.
    A matching pair at the front, different from a matching pair at the back is not so bad.
    If cost is the issue then I would much rather go for 2 cheaper matching new front tyres , then I good new tyre and one nearly worn.
    Also 1.6mm is the legal depth in my opinion alot of tyres are badly performing well before the legal depth.
