Taking runflats off an MOT fail??

Hi all.
I've taken the godawful runflats off my Dooper and replaced with normal Avons.
Is this likely to be an MOT issue?
The last owner had it MOT'd with three runflats and one normal tyre, and the normal tyre was marked as an advisory with "tyre not correct fitment/type"
Was this because she had a mix of tyre types?
Or do they expect Minis to have runflats?

Four non-runflats is perfectly OK for MoT purposes - it's likely the tester was objecting to the one runflat/three non-runflat mix.

I would give the tester full marks for noticing - checking tyre markings is pretty thorough.

It was Kwikfit that did that MOT, maybe they were trying to sell the original owner a new tyre!
I've been doing some research since posting this and it would appear the tyres themselves aren't an MOT issue.
I only have to make sure the tyre pressure monitoring system works, which it does.
It sets/resets no problem.
