MR2: Finding and/or mixing tires.

I have a '93 MR2 turbo. I blew one of the rear tires, and I want to replace both of them. The car is currently fitted with BFGoodrich Comp T/A 225/50ZR15 tires, but they are on factory backorder. I was thinking of replacing the rear tires with Dunlop SP 8000s, but I am worried about mixing these tires. The front tires have plenty of tread left. I would rather not put new tires on all around ($$$). Any suggestions on (1) where I could find some of the BFGoodrich tires in stock (I tried the 2 major mailorder houses), and (2) is it safe to mix these tires. If I do replace all 4, is the Dunlop SP8000 the right tire? I like to drive this car aggresively in corners. Thanks for any replies.
