Need new tires, can i replace just the rears?

Hey guys, so i had a blowout sunday, running on my spare tire now. The passenger rear tire is also worn.
The fronts still have some life in them. But would need to be replaced sometime in next year.
I can only really afford 2 new tires, I have a buddy at America's Tire working on getting me a deal.
Current tires are Riken Raptors. I hate them. they were on the car when i bought it.
Looking at the similar tread style, but In a Falken Tire. so far my buddy has them at $95 each but knows he can get some more off when i go in.

Would it be worth it to get all the same tire on the awd system, I've heard rumors of transmission problems from different tires and grip.
or can i run two Falkens in the rear for now, until i can afford new fronts.

I need to get new tires regardless. Snow is here, and im running the spare (some ancient goodyear)

let me know what you guys think, thanks
