17 or 18 inch wheel recommendations for drag

I'm planning on buying some drag wheels/tires but can't seem to find the right info in the search. Maybe I could get some help here?

I got a 2SS M6 and was looking for a wheel set that can fit 315s (mandatory), are 17 inch in diameter (I've heard smaller is better and 17 is the lowest for V8 brakes but maybe 18s is better for some reason?), and are streetable so I can drive 30 minutes to the track with them.

I hear alot of recommendations on c6 z06 wheels but they won't fit 315s. CCWs seem like a good brand but kinda pricey and not sure if they make 17s

Bogarts seemed like the best set but they can't be driven on the street. I don't have a means of transporting tires to the track just to change them out. Any brand recommendations would be great also.

I don't think the 17's will fit unless you change the breaks out to the V6 breaks. There was another thread about this a couple of weeks ago.

You will need 18's. There was a killer deal going on them in the vendor section too.

17's will fit over the brakes but only the custom made bogarts.

Would driving 30 minutes to the track and back on the bogarts hurt the wheel?

I'm not sure about driving on the bogarts. You're better off asking sjm. At $750 a wheel I wouldn't take a chance. Plus driving on a full slick may get interesting. If you need to drive i'd go 18's and some dr's
