Default What is the best drift tires?

Hello what is the best drift tires? I am now using the yokomo drift tires with the rings. How are the tamiya ones compared to the yokomo? has anyone tried the rubber yokomo tires? How about the rubber drift tires up front and the plastic ring ones out back? Any info on this would be great

here's my exp. with tamiya's drift tires: the tires are good for low speed drifts, if you open it up it's a little harder to drift it and it turns wide

Yokomo are the best if you have negative camber. If you have the full contact patch, HPI t-Drifts are awesome. However, they are not that great on carpet. They're more for concrete. Those are my top two choices for actual tires. Past that, ABS. I wouldn't waste the money on actual drift tires unless you just LIKE spending money. ABS is great, cheap, and outlast every tire on the market.
