Tyre not as advertised

I just bought a Metzeler Tourance front tyre. It arrived quickly, BUT:

On the TyreTec website the tyre I purchased is advertised as
"Radial tyres feature twin layer, 4-ply diagonal tyre carcass construction." ...
"Radial front and rear tyres feature Metzeler motorcycle tyre's 0 degree steel belt technology."

Metzeler produces two versions of this tyre. One is made in Europe (the "radial" version), the other is made in Brazil (non-radial). Stiffness and mileage on the radial tyre is a lot(!) better than on the non-radial. (Having done a round-the-world trip on a motorcycle, I know what I"m talking about from personal experience)

The tyre I received is made in Brazil. And I know for sure that other online retailers with similar prices trade the "proper" radial tyre.
Pay £5-6 more & get the radial one from someone else. 30-40% better mileage, easily!
