Default Drift tyres choice

Hey guys.

Currently running a tamiya tt-01 (i think), with a brushed motor.

Looking to get into drifting with it. Had a flying fish 2 before.

Just wondering what tyre recommendations do you have for me, prefer already mounted to wheels.

1/10th scale - wheel width 26mm - 12mm Hex fitting - 1.9" diameter.

Thanks

I make my own out of abs plastic pipe for about .24 set. When I enter a drift comp I have various compounds for the type of surface we are running on.
