Are all weather tyres compatible with summer tyres?

Are all weather tyres compatible with summer tyres? Can I have summer tyres on the front and all weather tyres on the rear of a 4 wheel drive?

Most definitely not. All weather or cold weather are not compatible with summer tyres and on a 4x4 all tyres have to be the same make and type and within 3mm of the same tread depth or you will have problems with the automatic 4WD system.
