    Hi guys,

    I'm building my first ever drift car to start drifting soon. I've got a 2001 330ci and I've already Welded the diff, got maxspeedingrods coilovers and rear camber arms, made a rear jacking point.

    Still to do is a dual caliper hydro brake setup.

    Just got one question about tyres.
    On the car currently I've got 225/45/17 also I've got a set of bmw x3 alloys with 235/55/17

    Are any of them any good for drifting?
    If not what sizes would you guys recommend?

    Thanks.

    Anything from a 215 up would be good on a 330ci best way is to keep track of the sizes and brand make of tires your using and see what you prefer overtime or what you find easier to drive with

    Put anything with with tread on it.
    225 45 17 will be easy to get as it's a common size.
    If your struggling up the pressure.
    Brands don't matter when your starting go get partworns from a local garage keep it cheap and have maximum fun
