Best drag tire/wheels?

Ive got an 07' 335i sport. I'm FBO and RB turbo upgrade/BMS flash no meth or e85 as of yet. I need opinions of the best drag tires and a cheap set of OEM style wheels as I will only be changing the rear on track days. Thanks for the input!

I just purchased a set of drag wheels and tires. I am testing them out tomorrow I will let you know what I think. I'm Fbo and running a E30 race map.
Apex ARC-8 17x9.5 16.9 lbs each
Toyo TQ drag radials 275/40/17

So far the fitment is perfect!

Price range 800-900 total. And well worth it! I was very impressed with the cars performance. I had many people asking if my car was an XI since my launches were so good! Not one car jumped me all night. I did lose to an E63 but not by much and I shifted too early lol. Go for it this set up works!

Its a E90 so fitment was perfect. I think it will work on the E92 as well.
