OK so you have modded it, you failed to mention that. I hope you have subframed it with some good material, with those ponies you'll twist it right apart.

20" of course. You need to know what diameter you can fit in the wheel well first. That will depend on the profile and width. Did you modify the fender and body?

This is going to be a trial and error unless you get the exact measurements of wheel to body clearances, suspension movements and turning clearances, as you stated it will be mostly racing you can start with the lowest profile possible as they will give you the most clearance.
