I know someone who essentially does drift with donuts in the US. not because of some japanese influence, but rather because they are cheap, easy to find, easy to spin, and easy to smoke.

seriously a 165 is a skinny tire.

somehow I knew when I saw the CAT tire roll that there was going to be at least one japanese guy at the bottom trying to catch it.
