lol, I will be running 17.5 buggy. I would run a second class (13.5 or mod), but its looking like I will be tire poor as it is. Alexis will be in open wheel novice though. I thought about novice for a minute, then changed my mind. But I promise you one thing, I will be slow. New tracks kick my butt, I need like 15-20 packs just to get my feel and I am fairly certain I wont be mounting up 2-3 sets of tires per car for this. mainly, just trying to get away from the inlaws and run srs one last time.

2 pairs should last you the whole day in 17.5.

Not everybody has that kind of budget

Orange barcodes last the longest.

Lee v1 or v2 will both be fine I ran both at cactus. I also used a set of proline suburbs in mx and they seemed to last the same amount of time as oranges. But when its sugared there is so much traction I felt there was quite a few different tires that worked fine as long as u had the right compound. Also I think u will be fine with a few sets of tires cause in 17.5 I only used 2 sets for the day.

In my experimenting, JC has lasted the longest on sugar.

v2 barcodes for States.
