919 front wheel options?

I'm looking to be able to swap tires for Trackday, and thus am looking for for a second set of rims. I may have a line on a 919 rear rim (My brother has an extra rear, and I'm going to tell him how scary and dangerous track day events are ) So I'm looking for a second front wheel.

Here is my question. Other than the stock wheel, is there something else that would swap onto the 919 with relative ease for trackday events?

why not just use tires that work well on the street as well as the track?

I've thought of that. I'm currently running PR 2's, and they seem to have alot of life left in them, despite having quite a few miles on them.... So one reason is that my current tires have a good deal of life left in them. They have served me so well for commuting and daily use, that I'm not sure I would want to run anything else as a daily driver tire. Also I use my bike mostly for commuting in town and interstate travel, I dont go out and play in the "twisties" with her on the weekend often, so it seems a waste of a sticky tire.

actually, if you do a lot of commuter miles, doing a few track days on them will help keep the tires from squaring out on you. win-win situation if you ask me!
