Hey, I'm building rally cars for each class for Storm Island events. But since the rally tires do have a lot of grip, is it overkill if I use it on C600 cars and below (because the car is getting to much grip and is wasted because I can make it faster with engine things)? Or should I take Sport tires instead? Any other ideas?

I usually don't upgrade tires until a class.

Yes lol if you want more grip off road go awd. increasing tire size dosent give you more grip it just changes how your tires hit the pavement. Low profile tires will hydro plane through puddles but they offer better dry cornering grip at the cost of acceleration and breaking. Only upgrade tire width if you want to change the slip angle. Only upgrade tire size if you feel the rim rolling over the side of your tires through turns, too big of a rim can hurt acceleration and breaking and again low profile tire = hydro planning.
