Just to say it, a removable wheel is not street legal. That may not bother you, it didn't bother me when I did mine, but if you ever sell it then it may be an issue for the next guy. Also, fixed back seats are not great fun when you are in the car for any significant period of time. Just something to consider.
I personally never let these details bother me, but as you get older you do find that race car parts are better suited for the track. Removable wheels and fixed back seats with five point harness do look cool on street cars, but there is a significant trade off to your comfort. A tilt wheel, adjustable back seat, and three point retractable seatbelt is far more suited to the street. This from someone who has been there and done that for almost 50 years. BTW, my first street car had a full cage, no interior, fixed back seat, five point harness, aluminum dash and gauges, and so on. So I speak from experience, just consider the tilt and adjustable seat and stuff like that, it adds to resale also.
All the best,
