Default New Pilot Sports on rear or 4s all round?

I have a stock car with stock suspension and ap2 v1 wheels. I currently have my winter set (AS3+ w stock wheels as well) on the car. My summers are Pilot Super Sports w 7/32 left on the front and about 5-6/32 on the rear. One of the rears is damaged (multiple nails).

The initial plan was to buy new Pilot Sport tire from tirerack and have it shaved down to 6/32. However tire rack no longer stocks this tire. I don't know of another place local to NOVA that offers this service.

My two choices are
1) Get a pair of New Pilot Super sports from places that still have them in stock new(like Walmart) and keep the fronts as is.
2) Get a pair of Pilot Sport 4s for rears... keep front as super sports w 7/32 tread. (How much of a miss match is this in terms of brand\performance\under steer)
3) Get a set of new Pilot Suport 4s in summer front and rear
4) just keep the AS3+ on all year round (to be honest the performance difference between them and PSS is negligible for street driving to me).

My main conerns here is the ability to not find Super sports new w warranty by the time it gets to be summer again.

What do you guys think? Option 2 is appealing because I don't mind slight understeer for daily driving... probably safer too.. how sensitive is the s2000 to slight miss-matched tread on fronts and rears...

I'd go with option #2 or #4. I've driven on mismatch tires when my s2 was a daily and also at the track. Wont make any difference on the street unless mismatched left to right.
