but what tire diameter do you guys running front and rear
whit 13.5 turns blinky
when I go 40mm front and 41 back
what its the life time off the tire
If your going by the basic setup sheet then I understand your frustration - I think it is incorrect .. 43mm/45mm tires are very large and a 2mm split between front and rear is also a lot.
The surface you race on mostly determines the size of the tires you should run. The more grip you have, the smaller the tire. More grip also lessens tire wear. It is a balance between car handling and lifetime of the tire. For club racing you might choose to use slightly larger tires, for a bigger event you might want to use smaller tires.
Bigger tires tend to 'chunk' more .. ruining the tire.
Also know that some rims are not the same diameter, for instance .. a Jaco brand front tire cut to 41mm has more foam then a CRC/BSR tire cut to the same size. The amount of foam on the tire is what we care about (it affects handling).
If club racing on carpet try 41.5 fronts and 42mm rears .. pay attention to when your car feels the best and note the tire size.
My preference for club racing:
CRC Grey Carpet - 41/42
CRC Black Carpet - 40/41
