Depends on your track banking, car weight, set-up, beadlocks or not, type of car, etc.

Mine: LF 15 RF 28


LR 15 RR 23

Metric Monte Carlo, 3250 lbs
High banked 3/8 mile, varies tacky/dry slick
Tires- Dayton Daytons SR 255/60
Beadlocks on the right side

Every car is different

Daytons are a great tire but they like to chunk off on the side walls. We run on a 5/16 high bank and we run 14 lf 16 lr 20rf 19rr on a tacky track we will lower the rear to 14 and 16 on a dry slick with out any problems so far. A car is a 3300 with driver and we do not run beed locks but we use liquid beed sealer works great. The daytons are a great left side tire but you will just have to try them and see what you think.

Daytons work really well here. They are so popular the dealer here has a hard time keeping them in stock. According to him, thats what everybody comes in asking for.

Also notice the diff in tire pressures between Dupree and mine, just have to try different things and see what works best for you. Or find someone at your track with a similiar car and ask for their help. Most guys here in the same class are willing to help any time.
