Drag tire setup for MK6 GTI/GLI

Hi everyone, I'm interested in getting a tire package for next season but have no clue what to buy. I did a bit of research but still stuck at square one basically. Would like a setup like this but doubt it would work without some modifications.

To run a 15" wheel you would need to either shave the calipers or swap to base model brakes. I for one am not doing either.

So now i'm leaning towards a 16" wheel with some sort of slick but am not sure on exact fitment specs.

Would a lightweight 16x7" wheel work with these tires without rubbing?

Also what kind of setups is everyone running/what times?
