Default Drift wheels?

Does anyone know where to get "drift" wheels from? or do I have to make my own?
Thanks

Put electrical tape on your tires, it works great to drift. in the front I would put the tape as far out as you can without any tape flapping around and in the rear, put it right smack in the middle.

Drift wheels? Any kind of wheels could be drift wheels. If you mean tires, yokomo will be coming out with some soon for their drift car.

Default Drift Wheel

We are using pipes as tyres to drift please follow the below link to see a short clip.

This is the result of our first week of playing drift and hope u like it.
