Thicker isn't really where you want to go. More efficient core is a far better answer. We now have a 36mm that outperforms our old 56mm. Not the cheapest part, but we can make a non-M fitment. ...

1qt will usually do it.



I usually don't put extra wheels and any tires into the cost of a build. I would usually get a car running on take-offs and then the tires would be consumables.
