so many choices

I've been looking at wheel/tire combos and there are a lot of choices. I'm pretty sure that if I decide to pull the trigger on this, I'll definitely go with Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Now the fun begins....

I'm looking to buy a package on TireRack. I want the tires/wheels shipped to me ready to go, so all I'd have to do is swap them. The selection of wheels is fairly limited, but I see a few I like. The majority of them are 10" wide rear and 9" wide front. There are a couple of 10.5" rears, and one 11" rear by Hurst (which I actually think look pretty cool).

As for tires, I'm not sure if I should do the PSS in 295/35-20 or 315/35-20. It looks like the 295's need a 10" rim, and the 315's need at least a 10.5".

What's a good size for the front? The largest front rim width that came up in my tirerack search is 9", so that limits me to 275/35. If I want to put 285's up front, it looks like I'd need at least 9.5".

Are there any vendors on here that sell complete packages e.g wheels mounted, balanced and ready to go? I'd like as little hassle as possible. Just want to get them shipped and put them on, without doing any modifications.

Here's the TLDR version: If you were buying a complete set of the Michelin PSS tires, what size would you get, and what rim width? Car sees occasional track use (1/4 mile) but is mainly street driven.

If I do this, I think I want to do:

rear: 315/35R20 285/35R20 on an 11" wide wheel
front: 285/35R20 on a 10" wide

Now I just need to find some good rims. I'm looking at the Factory Reproductions ZL1 wheels, and I'm also considering the Forgestar F14's in gun metal gray.
