Default 1:8 scale on road help...please

I'm a year and a half into r/c. Could not love it more. I have 2-Slash 4x4s losi scte and a losi 22.
One of my slash 4x4 is been an indoor track only truck, very fast very hopped up and very detailed. I wanna turn it into a GT8 style car. Ive seen the STRC conversion kits, the proline/proto body but very few 17mm wheels and tires. Not sure if I would race this (what Class). Any thoughts or opinions would be great. Maybe what is a good wheel and tire combo. probably run indoor at westcoat raceway or outdoor or carpet...lol Just need a jumping off point....talking about the car...lol

Checkout www.igthobbies.com
They have a good selection of 1/8 on-road tires, especially PMT's and Sweeps. Also check out OC Circuit under california racing. The next race will be at Corona Hobbytown USA parking lot May 20th.
