Track wheel and tire option.

I have a choice to make and want some confirmation as to what some of you with experiences think.

I am going to be doing some track days and on my car currently I have a staggered set of Apex Arc 8s (18x8.5 & 9.5) with PSS 255s and 225s.

I also have my stock wheels of 17x7s. I have somebody that wants to buy the tires (run craps) and I got to thinking about putting dedicated track tires on those wheels.

What do you guys think would be best...

The Arc 8 setup that is wider and lighter but PSS tires or the narrower and heavier wheels with slicks for track use only?

If the later, recommended moderately priced tires would be appreciated.
