Default Ideal set up for drag racing?

Between these two set up which one would you pick if you are to run your car at the track?

1. Stock 07 WRX wheels and RE92 (20 + 23 lbs) = ~43lbs

2. Stock 04 BBS wheels and RE070 (16 + 27 lbs) = ~43lbs

I tend to believe better drag set up may be #1 since more weight is distributed toward the edge with set up #2. Any thought?

Your help is appreciated.

245 width may not be ideal on a 17.5 width wheel... 245/45/17 means about an inch taller than OEM rubber size and about 3-4 lbs heavier.

RE92 = 215/45/17
RE70 = 225/45/17

Unfortunately, my car has 4 pot brakes in the front and do not really like how RS wheels look.
