Are you looking for actual racing slicks? If so, I have no idea where you'd find them.

If you're looking for DOT-legal R-compound tires (ie Hoosier AS/RS303, Kumho V700, Yoko A032R, etc) then click the Tire Rack link at the top of the page and search to your heart's content.

Tirerack has Hoosier slicks available in 225-45-17 (which is actually closest to stock diameter BTW).

My vote would be go for the Kumho Victoracer dot r-compound track tires. They are the most bang for the buck around. You don't need to shave them or heat treat them from my own personal experience. I tried them all ways and they are fine without that stuff.

Mr. Smarty-Pants (me ) went to Tire Rack and searched for 215/45-17s and guess what? There's nuthin' in that size as far as Kumhos, Hoosiers, BFGs, or Yokos go. So, I guess your last hope would be the Toyo RA-1 - I'm not sure if they come in that size, nor am I sure where to find that info. Sorry!
