They shouldn't be a problem. If they are the same size, its not like your car is going to know the difference and freak out. Do it.

As long as it is not a AWD (the new OD vs. old tires worn OD) You sig looks like it is a Tsi so go for it. IMO, I would keep the pair either front or rear.

tread it self is not going to mess up the tranmission, different tire size will, you can have 4 different tires on an awd it the car wont care as long as they are all the same size, now, you put a 17" with a 225/45 on the front and a 18 with a 215/40 on the back and you can kiss your viscous coupling good-bye

but like i said same tire size= no issues
