Default Which set of wheel to use for drag racing?

1. 06 WRX wheels (21lbs) and RE92 (23lbs) for a combined weight of 44lbs.

2. 18x8 SSR GT7 wheels (19.4lbs) and Kumho MX (22lbs) for a combined weight of 41.4lbs.

My car ran 13.05@106mph with set up #1 and wonder what the effect of wider but lighter wheel set up would be on time/trap speed.

Thanks for your advice

#1, a little wheel slip is a good thing. <3lbs per corner isn't going to make much a difference.

I'd go with the SSR/Kumho set.
