You can search on tirerack and such and they rate the tires for treadwear. The problem usually with tires that have a high treadwear rating is that they are a harder tire, and so will not handle as well as a soft tire.

Well when you want to drift what i do is i go into the turn when you feel a certain amount G (practice in a parking lot first) and the egnien is at above 4k pulll the e-break really quickly realse and lean on the gas and steer out....
to just do a burnout rev you car to red and just drop the clucth.... it should go from there..
So you can count on your tires wearing out, your ebrake going, your engine not lasting as long, and you transmission and clutch going out. Yeah. I am not saying don;t drive your car hard it is a fun car, but these things will ruin your car very fast. I would take it a little easier on your car. BMW repair bills are not cheap if you haven't seen yet. It is alot cooler to learn how to launch by the way than to burn out......a burn out is a failed launch.
Whats wrong with you guys... seriously... can't you have a little fun with your cars.. thats why we have mechanics to fix em seriously u guys got problems if your scared to use your right foot keep you car parked in your garage... i say let the smoke fly...
You have a RWD!!!! Why on earth would you use the E-brake to drift? That's what ricers do in FWD cars when they can't oversteer. I think you need more practice in your car. It's not hard at all to drift a stock 3 series.
IMO burnouts and donuts are a great way to break everything on your car. It's fun, till you get the major repair bill for the dampers, control arm bushings, trailing arm bushings, ball joints, rear shock mounts, sway bar endlinks, tires, power steering, etc etc the list goes on. It's not a bulletproof car at all. I hope it was all worth it for a little bit of smoke. I never waste money burning rubber unless my winter tire's tread is getting low and I want to smoke them off and replace them. Still, I never do donuts, it's VERY bad for the car. It's easy to break the traction on winter tires, but with grippier tires you'd probably need to work the clutch/brakes quite hard.
