Running on 5/8's mile track with low banking. track conditions are always changing. I have the following tires:
235/70r/15
255/60r/15
205/60r/15
225/70r/15
215/70r/15

Rookie. Racer and Tech have good questions for you to help determine your setup. But, one thing to consider in your placement is the series of the tires (70 vs. 60). Basically, that number sets the sidewall height based on a percentage of your tread width. For example, the higher the series coupled with tread width, when placed on the right front, will make that corner roll over more. I would suggest in getting a close matched set of tires from what you have. Try to stay away from the 70 series, unless you need rollout for gear purposes, etc. Your 255/60 is somewhere over 84"+ in circumference. That's "HUGE" difference from the 205/60 which is in the mid 70" range. You can match certain 65 series to go with your 60's. The sidewall height there can be used for fine tuning by placing that tire in the required corner. Hope this helps. Good luck.

just measure the height width and circumference with a tape measure and use the inches instead of all of that metric crap. i figure its the best way to go. like a 235/70/15 is almost like a 28-8.50-15 and so forth i can see that this is the best way to go
