Our fastest tire setup was always the new shaved to 2/32's(minimum tread depth by the rules) that we used for qualifying or a short race where the tires would still be quick and not be corded before the end of the race.If started on 4/32 with a few heat cycles on it became quicker as the tread disapeared with our fastest laps usually at race end ,but remember this is a single session with no further heat cycling.
