What is the best autocross tire?

Are wider tires better for autocross?

Wider is almost always better. It is usually worth doing whatever you have to do to get a wider tire under the car, even if it means a larger tire diameter. Every single time we put a wider tire under the car (even if it was taller) we went faster. For my opinions on “street tires”, see this article.

Are smaller wheels better for autocross?

The reason being that acceleration is far more important then top speed at an autocross. Most classes don’t allow you to change your gearing so you can do it with rim size. The smaller the rim (diameter) you chose the shorter your gearing gets and the faster you accelerate.

What is the best wheel size for performance?

The sweet spot for most of our muscle cars and track cars is 17- or 18-inch wheels. This isn’t just my opinion, but that of many industry insiders. The 12- or 13-inch rotors usually chosen by the road racing crowd fit in these wheels just fine, and don’t need the additional clearance given by a 19-inch or larger wheel.

Do smaller rims increase acceleration?

Yes, smaller wheels accelerate faster, but it doesn’t matter. … A 29” wheel has more mass at a larger radius from the centre of rotation (the hub), and thus has a higher moment of inertia than a smaller wheel and is harder to get moving. So yes, bigger wheels will accelerate more slowly.

Are bigger rims better for racing?
