Mixing different (RFT/non-RFT) Front & Back Tires?

I need a new set of tires, and I had my eyes on the continental DW for a while.

only problem is, ALL the dealers around here only has the back tires in-stock and the front tires are back ordered (with no arrival date available..)

My back tires has worn to the minimum tread for lease return....so I am thinking of replacing just the back tires for now, and when the front comes in (1-2 months later?), I will then get them replaced.

Is this going to be a problem? I am using original sizes for the back, except the original tires are RFT and the conti. DW is not.

I am going to put back on the RFT tires I am replacing right now when I return the vehicles

Can't give them a cheap tires either as the lease return says I must return the vehicle with equivalent RFT tires
