What are you looking for, rims or tires? I find Yokomo's paint for the rims to be extra cheesy, it flakes off if you blow on it too hard. HPI makes some nice rims. As for the tires, I can only recommend my own. I just opened up an online drift tire shop. Stop by and check it out, I'm adding more rims slowly but surely, but I'm weeding out the rims with cheesy chrome finish.

Take it easy!

I can make any wheel looks hot. Yokomo has some nice JDM type wheels, but Hpi is comming out with a cool like of drift wheels.

Yes thats true i have had my yokomo hiper silvia s15 for 3 days and already the wheel paint is flaking off. I brought some other yokomo tyres the ones with the grooves, tried them on tarmac there good but are abit to sticky for drifting really good for speed drifting. The plastic ones wear away instantly but drift well.[quoteI find Yokomo's paint for the rims to be extra cheesy, it flakes off if you blow on it too hard. ][/quote]
