I was wondering if this is acceptable practise? I have seen a set of radial skinnies for the front of my car at a reasonable price (almost new) and was wondering if its ok to run them with MT ET drag slicks on the rear. I have heard its not good to run radials with non radial.
Help please....

It will be fine on a drag strip. You won't notice a thing.

I am running radials on front and MT slicks on back. I have been to 110 mph in 1/4 with no problem in handling. I am also running a 69 Mach with 428 and no power steering. I hadn't heard of Cal Trac so I have the CE slide a link set up on mine.
