Trackday slicks

I'm looking for slicks for a trackday set-up. And I want full slicks, no semislicks. There are few questions still unclear for me:

1) I'd like to find a suitable combination of wheel/slick tire to my E92M3. Any proven combinations/suggestions?

2) Is it possible to find a slicks that could be installed on OEM 19" wheels and works well?

3) Any wheel/slick combination available except (perhaps) 19" OEMs that could be simply changed to my car just by "drop-in" method? I'd like to avoid all hassle with slicks and just change them at pit = simple and easy.

I'm not a pro with tire installations and the goal is just to have fun and drive...perhaps with slicks if I just can find a good set-up to my machine.

Best option is probably to get some track wheels - 18". Check out these threads:

Toyo Proxes R888 is also good, but not full slick.
