Just get some good tires for the front, and some cheap tires for the rear like some federals.

I have a hunch that if you have to ask about what tires to purchase for drifting, you shouldn't be drifting... Just my thought.

Just find and use the cheapest or free tires you can find, thats what i do with no problems. Once normal tires get hot drifting they all feel the same sideways to me!! Have fun!! (:

You should tell us which car are you driving, it is better to figure it out to pick good tires for your car
