  2. 245/40-17
  3. Something bigger?
I'm also considering taking the car to the MSR track just for fun. Do I need to mess with camber as a noob?

Finally, do you have any pix of these in Anthracite/Satin/Hyper black mounted on a white E9x? Trying to decide between the dark colors. Sorry it's not a technical question but I just hate my OEM 16" silver wheels.
Ill take a stab at helping you. 1- you dont even need track wheels to run at MSR. I have done probably 15 track days on my daily wheel/tire setup. At some point it is cheaper to get track wheels and tires.
2-the apex are a great choice- you just missed a group buy on the arc-8 17s I just ordered some myself. Great wheels. But the 9.5's are wide and will require a 5mm spacer up front and camber plates to clear the strut. David can help you sort out the right fitment for you- but maybe the 9's solve this issue. Not to mention 225's are too narrow for 9.5 wheels.

Good luck- hope to see you out there.
