Default slightly different winter tires (close) question

I have a set of Dunlop Wintersport M3 winter tires that came off a FWD car and have about 5k miles on them. Becaues they were on a FWD car, two of them have about 85% tread left and the other two have more like 90%...I measured a 1/32" tread depth difference between them at most. I know that for the AWD you're supposed to use all four wheels/tires the same. Will there be any problem with my using this setup where the treadwear is just slightly different?

On another topic - do WRX tires wear evenly, or is there a wear bias toward the front or rear for regular driving?

I have confirmed with Luke from tirerack that up to 3-4/32" tread difference is acceptable on Subaru.
