Can you replace just rear or front tires with x drive?

Figured I'd ask,
Can you change just the rear or just the front tires with x drive? Or would that burn up the center differential if you didn't do all 4 at once? May be stupid question but still got me thinking

Any tire in front or rear is fine if within 1% ish diameter as the other axle

What about the M5's who use rear drive at times and have more rear wear than fronts? Is their center transfer case different than ours?
I just normally go thru rear tires 5 to 1 compared to fronts.
