I took my 100% completely stock 2004 RX8 out to my first track night at Pittsburgh International Raceway and had an absolute blast. So here I go down the rabbit hole. I've already changed brake fluid to DOT 4, and my first upgrade is going to be some decent race pads and vented rotors. I took it relatively easy on the brakes at my first event, but I want something to count on. I'd also like to throw on some decent wheels and tires. I think I have settled on some 17x9.5 Enkei NT03+M +44 wheels and 255/40R17 tires. I don't mind rolling fenders if I need to, looking for feedback on whether this is a good choice or a horrifically bad idea in this size and offset. I was caught between 2nd and 3rd gear in a couple of corners, and the smaller diameter tire with the increased corner speed will really help me get off the corner in 3rd. I also would prefer to save my stock tires and wheels for street use.
