Tire/wheel Advice for Auto X / Track

I managed to get a screw in my rear tire that cant be patched and I need to come up with a solution kind of quickly and any advice would be helpful! Here's what I have to work with:

Stock ZCP 19's - (1 rear tire w/ a screw) (19x9 and 19x10) 245x35x19 et 31 and 265x35x19 et 25 running Continentals and have some life left in them

Stock 335 Style 230s - (19x8 and 19x9) 235x35x19 et 37 and 265x30x19 et 39 running Hankook Ventus V12s decent life in them

VMR VB3 - (all 19x9.5) 255x35x18 et 33 running Advan AD08s maybe 1 or 2 events left in them

I was planning on selling both sets of wheels I had from the 335 and buying a set of Apex Arc 8s in 18x10 for track/autox and do 275s all around, but this screw has me needing tires for the ZCP wheels that I was planning on using for an event on Sunday and another in Oct.

So the question is, what kind of shell game do I play to still be able to have fun until I get the new set of wheels/tires?

Do I try to run a mix of the 230s in the rears and ZCPs in the front? Do I need spacers?
Do I try to run the VMRs? Do I need spacers?
Do I try to buy tires for the VMRs that I transplant to the new Arc 8s?

I cant make up my mind! Thoughts?
