I do have the Tarrett studs (even the rear studs since I forgot you don't remove the rear calipers to change pads) and I've been running Pagid yellow pads. I was changing back to street pads last night when I realized all the front and rear tire wear.

I've been looking at 18 and 19 inch wheels but I don't see as many 18" tires available. If I use 19" tires, they'd be the same 35 profile as I currently have on the 20's which makes me kind of worried when driving over corner curbing.

BTW, you can't really hit curbs in a kart so it's a really fun new experience.

I run 245/40/18 on front and 275/40/18 on rear, but I've seen people running 235/265, 245/285, 255/285, 255/295. So, several options depending on what wheels you select.

The Pagid pads are probably contributing to your tire issues. Those pads have so much more stopping power than stock, that you are putting a lot more heat into the tires.
