Was wondering what the best size of tire and offset should be ran on a 3/8 mile flat oval. I am running 215/50/14 now. and it seems to slide quite a bit. was also wondering if going to the smaller tire might help with the handling.
thanks

sorry about that i'm still learning. i run the same size as a.j. and on a 3/8 medium banked dirt track. we've also tried some 15" tires but this required a big change in our set-up and gears. there are 5 of us that help each other out in trying to get to the front. it's tough to compete against those high dollar cars.

AJ,
is that just on the rear or do you run those offsets on both front and rear?
Thanks

I run 2 off on the right side (14"); 3 off on the left rear (14"); and 2 off on left front (14"). Occasionally, depending on the track condition, I'll run a 3 off on the right rear.
