Cheap drift tire challenge #1: Venezia Crusade HP vs Kenda Kaiser KR20

Who will win this cheap tire challenge? The Kenda Kaiser KR20 or the Venezia Crusade HP? Comment with what tire I should try next!

Both tires are under 150 shipped, 225/40/18, both are on stock 350z wheels, both are inflated to 25psi. I ran the same version of the track, 2 different ways as many times as I could before the tire or car failed.

Keep in mind, these tires would have lasted even longer if I didn’t do back to back to back laps and gave them time to cool off.

I don’t know if they still make them, but if you can get ahold of a Michelin Hydroedge tire, the ones I had were 740 treadwear but they gripped like 400 and I could wail on them all day driving for grip and they’d barely be chafed on the outside edge.

Is it sad that I’d be interested in the smokiest tire? (For putting off the chase driver, and general badassness)
