SVT Build help!!!!

So I have a 2004 Focus that I am building to be driven everyday for 2 1/2 hours at 70+ MPH and I am trying to make it the best that I can. So right now I have Megan springs, Koni struts and shocks and prothane bushing kit. So I am going to be upgrading the engine and transmission and in order to get the power to the ground I am going to need big wide tires ( which is why I am planning on making a wide body kit). What is the widest anyone has gotten on there's? Again planing on power upgrades so brake upgrades is a good idea. I was planning on just EBC dimpled/slotted and pads with calipers, but open to other ideas. As far as suspension is there anyone out there that has done any extreme builds? I was thinking about maybe air ride is there anyone that has done a good job of this? I have quite a few plans, but I am looking for good ideas. The simple stuff is not really need( i.e. strut brace bar and stuff). Is tubular control arms worth it?
