Don't do it, all the tires must be the same manufacture and all be within 2/32 of each other. Ask any 4X4 guy and he will tell you the same thing, they have to match or the differential speeds will be different and it's bye bye transfer case. If they are just slow punctures then why not have them fixed?

To answer your question the Sorento is FWD but take tennisshoes advice as he is correct.
