I understand now why you suggested that for the 800.

Over steer and Under steer.
Though combinations are prohibited as a last resort you could use them. When you do the unthinkable find out whether your car under steers or over steers in high speed corners or sudden lane changes by looking up driving impressions in magazines of the M800.
If your car understeers you could use the radials in the front and if it oversteers then you could use the radials in the back.
Usually radials provide better grip especially when cornering and hence the advice.
We usually try to get neutral handling but beginers like most of us would be better of with a bit of understeer and hence the usual adivce to out the radials in the rear.

Rear wheel correction is tricky and sometimes be disastrous for a lesser experienced driver especially under high speed situation.
On the other hand as nitrous pointed out at low speeds front loosing grip under panic braking and over sand is a possibility. Its a tricky situation either ways, so better upgrade all 4 or place the tyres depending on your driving conditions / needs.
