I didn't think of that. :/ are spacers safe? I have always wondered that. Am I better off getting a different rim with a different offset and backspacing

It is all about the cash u want to spend. If u have the extra greens then yea get a custom fitment of the forgestar and call it a day. But if u just don't feel like spending that extra $ and time for them to make it then just get the spacers with sve and u will be happy.
I wouldnt think about the rims for now and just go to the track a few times and see what u want to improve and feel the difference. I first when all stock and I felt like I had wayyy to much power for the car and just focus on brakes and suspension. Them u add the power with the tires/rims then u could do the cage with the seats and weight saving. And just take it step by step and it will be more fun than just doing it all at once, just my 0.02

There are ppl running 315s on the front. If I remember right 5.0 mag had an article on it. I'm not sure, but I think the lower control arms were changed.

If I am correct you shouldn't run 315 up front for the road course, such a big front tire is more for autocross where there is less speed and sharper turns.

That probably would be a better way to do it and feel the changes and gain experience as well. Before I go all out
