New Here!!!

Hey everyone!! I'm new to this forum. Finally got my hands on a 2008 Cobalt SS 2.0 Turbocharged (1.5L Turbo) with only 53k miles on it!! I love working on cars and can't wait to tune mine. I love how it drives aside from the serious torque steering it has. Definitely plan on putting in a stabilizer bar to help with that. So far the car pushes about 15lbs of boost and has a 0-60 in about 7.2 seconds. With the launch control on, my tires still break loose pretty badly though. Any recommendations on good tires for her? I want to swap out a lot, I just don't know where to begin!! I am open to any advice!! I'm considering a stage 2 tune-up kit, a cold-air intake and an air release valve. It already has the short-throw shifter and no-lift shift functionality along with the performance clutch and it has the beefed up rear brakes. Anyone know where I can order custom parts painted to the color I like? Finding anything for the 08 is rather difficult.
