Default drift tires

well I'm getting my TA-05 on christmas and I thought I might goof around with the idea of drifting. I just want to see what's like. So I took the tires off my old Dash and flipped them inside out, would this make a good drift tire? here are some pics:
what about if I wrapped electrical tape around the tire so much that it was flush with the reversed bead?
or should I go with the strip of electrical tape on each side with room for 2 nickles in between method I read before on this forum?

your best bet would be to just get some ABS or PVC pipe or you could just do the tape both sides method good luck but yah i dont htink that would work so try ABS PVC or taping both sides good luck

PVC is too hard, ABS is much better
