It is my understanding, they must be the same compound and size. Size meaning both fronts must be the same size, like 450's. Rears must be the same size, like 710's. In addition you can not run a 5" and a 6", they must be all 5" or all 6".

I will verify with the board.

Quoted directly from our GSKA rules for Clone and Sportsman:

Tires: 5" open compound or 6" Firestone YKD (No diameter mixing permitted)
Wheels: max 6.5" front and 8.75" rear

Does this help? kids 2 cycle Board of Director

BB12-go to the top of this page and click on "classes"" and all the rules are listed there. We at GSKA try to do everything possible to make our racing fair to all. I believe publishing rules like we do is a good start.

Glad to have helped. c
