06 STi - Track Wheels and Tires

Hello,

I have a stock 06 STi, and i'm going to get into tracking the car. I wanna purchase a set of rims for the track with some track tires, but i don't know what i should go with. The look isn't too important since it is only going to be used for the track. I mostly want an effective weight, size, and tire. What would you guys suggest?

Thanks!

P.S. I have never tracked the car before, so if i should start out with a street tire, than please tell me! I'm open for all suggestions!

I was looking into some RPF1's. What about Kosei K1's? Can i fit a 10" wide tire? Also, i'm guessing i should stick with 17s because its lighter and cheaper to get tires for?
