Mixing Bias Ply and Radial tires
I need a new rear tire. I currently have the OEM Dunlop radials front and back. For my new tire, I have a choice between two tires (150/80-15, these are literally the only two tires I have found that fit) the OEM Dunlop radial (which handle like crap) or a Metzeler ME880 Bias Ply. The Metz has some fantastic reviews, but I've always heard don't put a bias on the rear with a radial up front. (can't afford to replace both tires right now, need to get back on the road) However, I have not found any conclusive evidence as to why other than "because I said so". Anyone here have actual experience or in-depth knowledge about this?
