I had the same problem last year after about 24,000 miles, and since a pair of rear NCT5s would have cost $700, I opted to throw away the good fronts and mount 4 DWS tires for $600 (with a CCA discount).

The idea of combining RFTs and non RFTs - or even tires of two different makes/models - was quickly discarded as I want to be able to depend on the emergency & wet road handling of my 128i. I have not regretted that decision.
