Talking Lease return - can I mix tire brands?

Hello,

I have a 2016 BMW M4 returning the lease in a few months. Which tires should I put on when returning so I don't get charged by the dealer?

Are the Michelin Pilot Super Super Sports rated STAR BMW OK? The fronts have the originally equipped Conti's but I'm only going to change the rear two to Michelin PSS's. Is it ok if the pairs' brands are not the same?
Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I thought just the speed rating and type needs to match.

So you need RFTs if you had those, or w/e speed rating the stock tires were.

I been leasing BMWs for a while, they don't even look at it.
It helps a lot if you lease it again with them.

I called the first time I ever did a lease return. They just care about the speed rating and amount of tread left. If your car came with runflat, it needs to come back with run flats.
