Track/AutoX set up

I want to get a dedicated set of track/autoX wheels and tires. I'm going to say this up front just to get it out of the way, I don't have much knowledge about wheel and tire sizing and have done research but do not fully understand what I am reading. So please don't just say "Search," I am looking for some good honest feedback so I can put more effort into researching my options. I do however know that I want a square set up. As of now my 135is is stock with the hope of doing suspension/springs and fender rolling some day. What would be the best sizing (size and width) for a dedicated track and autoX set up? Any feedback is appreciated, thank you.

I run a set of Apex ARC8 wheels, 18x9 ET42 in front and 18x9.5 ET62. The fronts have a 3mm spacer, and do need lots of negative camber to clear the fender. 255's in front, and 265's in the rear, although I've had 275's on the rear, and they do fit.
