Default Need advice on tire/wheel purchase

I'm looking for some advice before I purchase another set of wheels for winter. I currently have stock set-up. I plan on going to 4 to 5 track events a year.

My driving habits have changed a bit since going to the track. I really don't push the car hard on the street anymore. I guess I kind of think of it as a commuter car that happens to go fast on the track. My commute to work will soon go to 3 miles each way.

Would I be a moron for slapping all season tires on my primary wheels and getting R-compounds on a set of Rotas for the track?


Should I keep the summer set/winter set, set-up and when I get enough cash go for a track set of tires?

If anyone has done the all-season thing I would like to hear what you think. Also, I would like to hear from folks who use R-compounds on the track inn their STi's and whether or not you believe it is worth sacrificing summer/winter set-up for a few track days with R-compound.

Thanks in advance.
