Burris TX-33 Tire Sizing Help Appreciated

I'm looking to establish a baseline tire diameter/stagger and this is the information I have currently.

* Predator Division racing on a flat to very minimal banking 1/8 mile clay track
* Rules state my use of Burris TX-33 treaded tires, no grinding, cutting, or prep allowed. Out of the package straight on the kart.
* Wheel diameters are 6in left front, 8-1/4 left rear and right front, 9-1/4 right rear

The wheel diameter recommendations came right from Burris themselves.

Again, I'm looking to establish a baseline as to the diameter of the tires and how much variance between left and right side tires. I know these recommendations will change at some point but I need to start somewhere and if I can get things relatively close, I'd be happy.

Thank you for your advise and go easy on the stagger challenged newbie please....

I ran the 11/5.5/6 on 6 and 6.5 wheels . On the left .
Big stagger with 12 /9/6 k21's finally went to 10 inch wheels .
The k21 rolled out at 36"
The 11.5's are probably smaller . Still i think 9.25 is too narrow .
They do not shrink easily be sure to have a good tire band .

With that said and my rudimentary understanding of it, where should I start ?

35 right, 34.5 left ?

I dont think your going too have a choice . Once mounted they are what they are . You may have better results then me . At the time we were beginners and did not have the proper equipment nor experience .
Stretching should be no problem , shrinking is my issue .
If you come out with 1 1/2 I'd say your golden .
