Yep I believe better rubber should always be your first mod if you are serious about drag racing or auto-x. If you want an exhaust or an intake,then I guess you just want to be able to tell people that you have an intake or an exhaust. Tires will always give you better improvements than those especially in auto-x.

yeah but I wouldn't recommend 18's. They will reduce performance due to the smaller side wall. The ride will be real rough and it'll be very easy to bend the rims. 17's are the way to go.

I agree with Focus, stick with 17"s and you will be happy since it gives you a low-profile look without sacraficing ride comfort.
