Default car+tire+track

I thought there should be a specific thread of tire combos of different cars, and the type of track and situation.

I'll start here. In the bay area i run my pro4 +rubber+carpet track. My tire combo is 22's in the rear and 27's in the front. I use take-off tires.

A lot of the time carpet racers will use rubber for stock and 19 turn, and foam for mod.

Default Modified outdoor asphalt racing

outdoor asphalt I have used speedmind rears(30mm) cut down to 27mm all round and I run 35's on the rear and 40's on the front. And the same with ellegi's and fast tires.

now I am starting to get into rubber and I have used take off 22's with CS medium insert on 26mm rims and I have tried 27's with yokomo medium inserts and 24mm rime and both have been really good on asphalt surfaces.

Quite a few tracks dictate weather rubber or foam tires are allowed. If it's the racers choice, everyone would be on foams.
