Drift tires are a tricky part of your drift car set up to get right. Get your tire choice and settings wrong and you won't have much fun.
>> Tire Size
When it comes to choosing the right size tire for your drift car, you have to make sure your car is going to have enough power to spin them. Make sure it's not too big in diameter or width because it takes more power to spin them.
17" wheels and tires look cool but if you have them on a non-turbo AE86 sprinter, then you'll find it hard to spin them. I'd go with some 15" tires instead. I actually still use 15" on my Cefiro about 205/55/15 are ideal) and 16"s sometimes. 17" and above are OK for modded turbo cars with low profile tires.
