For rims, do a Google or whatever on rims with a 4x108 spacing. The Rotas are extremely light and cheap, and look pretty hardcore. In fact, for any part, just hit up Google. I use it all the time, and it's a big part of what makes me appear smart on this forum...

I'd say to go out there on sucky tires for a while, because that will help you attune to how your car reacts a lot better, and not get you to just rely on the grip instead of learning good lines. In essence, it requires you to learn and up your game instead of just relying on equipment.
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...
