It depends on what car you have. To some extents, you even need to have as much as 4mm split front and rear (i.e. 60mm fronts, 64mm rear) to have a 1:1 ratio.

Nitro sedan foams come in about 65mm sometimes up to 67mm depending on the brand.

On a Kyosho RRR with a default 23T front pulley you need to run a 2mm split, but with an option 24T front pulley (which comes with the kit, but you need a 387 belt) you run 0 split, that means you run the tires at 60mm rear and 58mm front if running a default 23T front pulley and 60mm front and rear or 58mm front and rear with a 24T front pulley,(diameter of the tires are just a starting point, it depends on the track you will be running) Hope this helps.
Just remember that you need to purchase a 387 belt if you choose to run a 24T pulley.
