Default Reducing Tire Size -

I bought a race car that has 32x14-15 slicks on it. The previous owner had about a 1000 hp pushing them. I don't. I'll have around 700. Since I need to replace the tires, they're shot, I really don't know what size to get. I'm not planning to increase the hp any time soon. Any suggestions.

If it were me I'd put the 32x14-15 right back on it. I think that is really a good size for 700 hp. If the previous owner had 1000 hp 33x16's should have been on it if he had the room. I wouldn't go any smaller. JMO!

I think that's what I'll do. Thanks.
