Mixing radials with non-radials?

    Anyone know about tyres?

    I recently purchased a V65 Magna. I need to replace the back tyre for the
    MOT and I don't know if the Dunlop Qualifier on the front is a radial or
    not, I can't see markings on it to say what it is.

    Is it acceptable (for mot purposes) to fit a radial on the back if the front
    tyre is not a radial?

  2. Yes. Some tyre sets are sold in just that configuration. Apart from
    that, it's a requirement that if only one of the pair is a radial, it
    must be the rear.
