Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I have a stock 19" 2010 M3 that I plan ~4 track events this summer.
Experiece with RE11 vs S-04
Does the speed rating of 186 mph on the 04 vs 168 mph on RE 11 make any difference?

The the 18" square vs 19" 9.5/10.5 wheels (I know this has been extensively discussed) make a difference in handling?

Appreciate advice from experienced track folks.

Garage List
2011 M3  [3.37]
The RE-11 would be better track tires compared to the S-04.

I loved my re-11. They handled the heat at the track very well and rode smooth and quiet on the streets all the way down to the cords. Crazy grip for a street tire.

Thanks, that is helpful. I'll go RE11 on TE37SL
Should I go 18" or 19" or no matter?
