I wouldn't worry too much about being new, just have fun! To start out, (assuming your running blinky 17.5) i would recommend a set of proline pyramid in the z3 compound for the rear, or z4 if you can't find z3. z4 is just softer, so it wears a bit faster. For the front, proline wedge in the z3, slim or regular size, not wide. Again, if z4 is the only compound it is a bit softer and will wear faster. It may give you better traction in the rear, and for the front it may give more front steering.

Other options to consider are proline pinpoints, or prisms in the rear, schumacher cactus in blue compound for the rear, proline wide wedge in the front (if you have the wide front wheels), and jconcepts swaggers for the front.

Depending on how much practice you can get in, one set of tires may last you the day (for the rear). The fronts hang on a bit longer. If your running mod, for some reason it seems tires last longer, and some of the mod guys put their worn out stock tires on their mod cars. I don't run mod.

Lately I have been running proline wide wedge fronts, and proline pyramids in the rear. On occasion I'll switch to cactus. With the cactus you will also need to buy the blue inserts as they don't come with inserts, where the prolines do. Cactus and inserts are typically less expensive than prolines that come with inserts.
