Is it ok to put mis-matching tyres on my Toyota RAV4?

Would it be okay to put tyres not matching on my 2006 Toyota RAV4 D4D? Could it interefere with the four-wheel drive engaging automatically and are there any other things I should be aware of? These tyres are brought in from abroad and almost new and it's tempting to buy them as they are a fraction of the price of new ones.

Would really appreciate your advice on this.
