Hey everyone, wondering if someone can school me some different use cases for rims and around the rear rim size usage. look for “rule of thumb” type stuff.
- When to use aluminum rims?
- When to use Magnesium rims?
- Why use 180mm over 210mm rims (and vice versa)?
- Why stretch smaller tires on 210mm rims? does this improve/change any characteristics of the kart/tire?
From speaking to some people this is what I’ve gathered, they general recommend running magnesium because it maintains heat better and you should use them 99% of the time, alternative being when it rains you switch to aluminum, but no real reason why. unsure about why people sometimes use smaller (control tires) on 210mm rims, some say larger contact patch, some say it gives you more turn-in bit…
Anyways looking to hear from the experts on these topics.
