Regarding your question on what kind of wheels you should use, it mostly a question about taste but... if you have a standard suspesion you should go for not more than 17" wheels, like M Roadster wheelset, but if have really god suspesion on the car, and Im not talking about DINAN but a god one like AC Schnitzers adjustable kit, you would be very satisfied with this combination; (That is if you enjoy a sportive car)
8,5x18" ET 30mm with 225/40 front and 10*18" ET 23mm, 285/35.
The ET is extremly important on this car, we tried first to use the ET 30 on the rear but that was not perfect, then we tried to use ET 23 and that was unbelivable, the car is extremly stable in high speeds and corners fantastic.You should also choose a wheel that are very leight. The BBS Le Mans is a very good choice.
Note: My experience comes form the M Coupe and that could be a little different than the Roadster

When it comes to tires, the Dunlop SP 9000 is a fantastic alround tire, but if you want a more extreme tire you shouyld try the new Continental Sport N1. It needs some heat to work but then it really works !!!
Good luck...
