Sorry, Tire question: bt-020 front with bt-021 rear

I have been searching for the last hour for the answser to this question, but is it possible to run a bt-020 in the front with a 021 in the rear. Also, because the 020 is being "phased out" for the 021, is it possible to still obtain a 020 front in our 19" size?

That's an excellent combo . . . (020 Front/021 Rear). I contacted Bridgestone about the replacement for the 020 front and was told to use the 501. I'm currently running that combo (501 Front/021 Rear) and liking it alot.

If you can find a 020 grab it, otherwise it's the 501.

I've run this combo a few times. The last place I saw any 020 front leftovers was at ronayers.
