Are you talking treaded tires - or slicks?
Outlaw karts as in winged/caged karts, or outlaw engines?
Makes a BIG difference!
What will you be running for an engine package on your new flat kart, and does the track have a tire rule?
Do they run the winged karts with treaded tires on the same night at this track.

All this info plays a factor in your decision for tires AND for tire sizes, since they are not the same from slick to treads.
