17 inch wheels are awesome for the track and street in general. My favorite thing about 17's is how light they are and but more importantly, how much cheaper the tires are for them. Often there are sales on 17" tires. 225/45-17 tires for example are dirt cheap so you can go to the track as much as you want and not worry about tires being a huge factor in terms of pricing.

You are just working on driving skill anyway, and you aren't racing against the clock, so why would you want anything more than the combination of performance and cost that 17" wheels offer?

Also, if you are interested in 17x9 wheels for the street and track, then I could help you out.
