    18 x 8's in a nice flush to arch offset.

    BUT

    what tyres i've been told 215/35/18 would be ok and toyo do a new 215/30/18

    However I want to drift and am a beginner the king says get nice grippy fronts and some shredders for the rear.

    Anyone got any recommendations ? :thumbs:

    I use 225/40/18's on a 9.5" rim, I'd probably go for 215/40 on yours :)

    Thanks phil - any recommendations on the brand to use front and rear ?

    Is it better at my stage of life to just have something grippy like and eagle or toyo up front and something dung like a nankang :eek: at the rear to shred ?

    Well just given SM my set of drift wheels.

    Gone for nankangs at the back and pirelli P0's at the front. Might help not destroy the standard clutch to quick as well having the duff rubber at the rear.

    Should be fun :) just gonna use the 18's to destroy rubber on and then the spare set of 16's to get me home should I get carried away :) :eek:

    Stick them on the back if you can get em in that size.... I had a set that lasted ages and felt ok to drift on.
