Put sauce all the way across the rear and about 1/3 to 1/2 of the inside of the front, depending on how much steering you need. TRC and Jaco are the most popular but i used to be sponsored by T.M. Racing and they make good tires as well.

I like the jaco but I now run for TM and have been extremely happy with their tires. They also have the new granite tire wich is very nice. The TM rims seem to hold up about the best the jaco rears tend to have some issues if you get hacked...
