Matched tires are always going to be better than non-matched. If you can't bring yourself to toss the front RFT's, or simply don't hate them as much as I did, then yeah, stick with the same tire you have on front. General rule of thumb on torquey rwd cars is that you can replace two sets of rears for every front set, so by the time you run the new rears down, your fronts should be shot too. Then you can decide if you want to get good tires.
