Yes. A wheel is a wheel. Lots of people do it and lots of threads on it. Most don't mix and match though, with 2 run flats and two regular tires. The bigger issue there is tire diameter. Generally, on any four wheel drive car it's best to have matching tires of similar tread wear.

Yup - the run flats do not ride well. P Zero is a nice tire. Enjoy the new life in your X3!

"The bigger issue there is tire diameter."

You can create issues with the transfer case if you have a mismatch of tire diameters. It was covered, by others a lot more knowledgeable than me, ina separate thread on this site.
