Default best wheels and tires?

Well, I'm trying to get into onroad racing and I nees some new wheels/tires.
I was thinking of getting two sets for now, one set of treaded for dusty conditions and one set of slicks for well groomed track conditions. Am I correct in my thinking in this?
I am pretty much clueless when it comes to onroad, though I've been racing offroad for a few years now (heavily modified UE/Dace t-maxx)

which set of treaded tires and which set of slicks would be the best? I'm looking for something that would be sort of a happy medium between tire life, and traction. Any foams I should look into particularly? and which wheels are the best?

Check out www.twistertires.com
Depends on the track conditions you can go with a softer compound. The shore ranges are 35 shore-45shore. 35 being the softer.

Go check out the races you are going to attend and find out what the fast guys are running. Then buy those tires. Treaded tires are not for racing generally. Many tracks allow the use of foam tires. Good luck racing!
