What you do:

Choose a rear tire width that gives you the traction you need.


Factors to consider:

1. Tire width ranges from 6 - 19 inches.

2. The wider the tire, the more it weighs.

The HiPerMath equation is:

tire weight = tire diameter + tire width - 10

3. The wider the tire, the more traction it gets.

4. The hotter the tire, the more traction it gets. It helps to do a burnout before the race.
