Had to replace a tire...

A couple of weeks ago I was off roading with my 2011 4X4 Grand Cherokee and experienced a blow out of my front left tire. The vehicle has 18"stock Michelin Latitude Tour with around 20K miles on them.

Unfortunately, in the remote area of Utah we were in I could not get a replacement Michelin and ended up having to get a Dunlap A/T Radial Rover 18" replacement. Had the repair shop put the new tire on the rear and moved the rear Michelin tire to the front.

Is there going to be a problem if I continue to drive the vehicle with the new Dunlap? Someone told me you could not mix tires and suggested I replace the remaining tires to match them up. There is still plenty of good tred on the Michelin's and I would prefer to hold off if I can. Is replacing necessary? Is there a possibility I can cause damage to the differential leaving it as is?

Thanks for your thoughts on this.
