IMO, for your weekly racing, you should trim them to whateverI asked 3 different people and got 3 different answers.
I can agree with you on that one Dan!! :thumbsup:IMO, for your weekly racing, you should trim them to whatever
size keeps you in the race.
When you take a brand new tire, and cut it down to 2.15, just to run with
your buddies on your weekly race day, I think you are tossing money
down the crapper.........But that's me.
As long as you keep your chassis shimmed at a consistent ride height (low!)
then the tire diameter of say 2.20-2.22 "generally" isn't going to cause you to
lose a weekly race.. Unless of course you are running with top guns.
In which case, it probably still wouldn't matter!
I've never been on any tire deals.. so I shot for the best compromise.
When they got down to say ~2.13, I'd put them in a zip lock, and save them
for a race where it might actually matter.. Cut them all down to ~2.12,
and keep fresh rubber on the car all day..
Obviously, like you say, there will be a dozen guys that think this is bull....
And a dozen that will agree.. :thumbsup:
not really! side wall height is what makes you fast not dia. smaller rim equal smaller diameter if your talking performance only.one thing to remember is the diameter of the rim, the bigger the rim the less meat you will have on it at a 2.20 or less... I know that BSR's rims are a little bigger in diameter than Tm's so you possible can get more runs on the TM's, there both great tires for sure, some other manufactures maybe different, Jaco, rc4less..
I understand that!!! just refrencing that there is more foam to work with on a TM vs a BSR, its just a personal perference for someone that is not concerned with side wall height and more about the money they have to spend on tires... don't get me wrong There both great tires for sure, it just what you prefernot really! side wall height is what makes you fast not dia. smaller rim equal smaller diameter if your talking performance only.
TM tires are fast about 2.03-2.04. on high bite
