Some of the popular combinations used by racers worldwide to help you get started. Note there may be better combinations that below, depending on your track.

Tamiya F104 - Pit Shimuzu PS-0571 front and PS-0572 rear. Tamiya 51399 medium front and 54199 soft rear.

Tamiya F103 - Ride Type A. Or Shimizu PS-0545 Rear and PS-0541 Front. Tamiya Type A front and rear. Tamiya Type B front and rear.

3Racing Sakura FGX - Shimizu Racing (#PS-0565) Grooved Tyre (R) and (#PS-0561) Soft Grooved Tyre (F)

Also important are the tire inserts. Personally I make my own tire inserts to provide better sidewall stiffness and airgap for grip.

FGX (kit rims) = 39 mm

F103 (rubber and foam) = 36.5 mm 

F104 (rubber and foam) = 44 mm
