What have you found to be the best tire size combo and brand for the stock rims.

Been running Slicks and plan to use these for a back up set, the GSCS have done well in bone stock sizes. Just looking for a little more rubber if possible at maybe a better price. Would also use these once in awhile to go to a local track about 10 miles away and avoid having to drag another set of wheels along.

Kumho V710 275/40-17f and 315/35018r.

You can fit a 295 on the front, but for open track I'd go with the better turn in response of the 275, which fits much better on the 9.5" rim.

Hoosier 275/40x17 & 305/30x18 (properly sized race rubber for stock rims)

However I recommend:
305/30x18 on 10.5x18 Front & 315/35x17 on 11x17 Rear (faster than T1 set up) and reduces static and mid corner understeer.

I agree the 305/30-18 is a better size for the stock rear rim, but I would rather run the V710 than the current Hoosier. The Kumho sticks a little better, lasts a little longer and costs a little less. The 315 on the 10.5" rim is pushing it, but the sidewall profile isn't screwed up enough to negatively effect contact patch, it appears.
