replied to the thread mixing tires
" Bias ply tires are much more flexible than radial tires, both in the sidewall and in the tread. This is why true drag slicks still use bias ply construction. You want them to flex and dig in on the launch.
They tend to have much less grip when turning, and less predictable at the limit handling characteristics than radial tires. So if you ran radial tires in the front with bias ply in the rear, in a turn, the front tires would tend to bite, while the rear would flex, up until the point they lost traction, resulting in unpredictable snap oversteer.
