Upgrading wheels and tires

I am looking to upgrade wheels and tires on my 2017 570s. Any recommendations? Or issues?

Don't know about wheels, but suggest Michelin pilot sport 4S. Much better tyre than the P-0. Can probably go for a 235 up front. A few have gone this size with no probs. The 225 is undersized for the rim.

I have a beautiful set of Forgelines for sale that were made for my 570GT, lighter than stock by 40#ish stock diameter slightly wider .5" front and rear with Mich pilot sport 4's mounted up already 245F/305R ,Color can be changed, I went with Forgeline bc they build everything themselves in the US. are a fully forged wheel and build wheels for many race classes and series throughout the world.

Here they are! My new track wheels from Finspeed. The are each one inch wider and despite that, the fronts are the same weight as the stock ones while the rears are four pounds lighter per wheel. I went with 19"s all around so that I have more tire choices and the really nice part is that the fronts have much more caliper clearance. My stock wheels have already been scored by rocks stuck between the barrel and the caliper. Some picks.
