i got my set for dex at andy's wheel services in arouca.

i had a hard time myself finding the right combination of specs which were 16x7, 5x114.3, and Ignorant Ignis had recommended that i purchase a 40 offset or less..
currently using dunlop dirrezza sport z1 star spec 205/50/16 on these wheels.

lol...i eh get how that make sense. You gonna drive it hard on winding roads and highway but fraid "roughing it up" at dex?
You are aware you rarely cross 80 kmph nor get out of 2nd gear in that little car park at dex right?
There is no significant damage/wear to be had on your car at dex assuming it was in proper working condition from the beginning.

best thing to do is to have a front pair just for dex:
good diameter/ width/ offset for ur particular vehicle with a pair of good dex tyres!
or if u can afford it!
a set for daily driving and a set 4 dex,
but 2 easier to tote in ur trunk and change @ the course

back in my days i had a spare set of 13s with dunlops on mih lansah to mash up @ dex!
lol!

Yea it does chew tires up...you can't run the same set on the road and at dex...you need to have another set solely for dex. Once you start driving clean a set of tires can last you an entire year at dex easily...thats what i do.

Well a lot of factors, aside from driving, account for how long ur tyres can last

1) tyre compound and treadwear
2) inflation (over or under)
3) width of tyre
4) camber and alignment
5) wheelspin
6) sidewall contact with tarmac which will encompass all the above
7) stiffness of suspension

im pretty sure ur ignis sport doesnt have the majority of the above to deal with beside MAYBE some minor alignment and major wheelspin issues

u should let them try a couple of runs 1st @ dex and see for themselves what they need to improve and make the tyres last....

my $0.02

You are correct...all of the above do factor in...but from experience...its your driving style and the ability to drive the car hard...on the limit but not over it. This is the most significant factor. What many rookies do is come to dex and they just want to go faster so they are flat on the throttle in many areas they should not hence scrubbing the tires.

agreed...

but proper technique takes a while to be acquired/ developed...
so for a rookie..their best defense is actually their own car...

bacause..... assuming their skill level is @ zero (no offense to anyone, just drawing a reference)
the only assistance would be

and i am saying this based on advice from seasoned dex drivers,
when i ran @ dex the first couple times (years ago)
i used to have one of the more experienced dex persons go with me to point out the areas i need to work on (in terms of accelleration and braking)and also to show me where the car itself was lacking.... and how not to mash up a good set of tyres by setting ur car up right and driving with a certain amount of discipline....learning the thresholds for your car and keeping it within it limits...
