Bottom line is that only tires specifically made for drag racing should be burned out before a race. Regular street tires with treads should avoid this, all it does for street tires is strip off the rubber.

Burnouts were originally used by spys to shrowd their cars in smoke for a getaway.. Its sorta like the ninja and smoke bomb. xD

I have to dissagree with you "drifting is not just for show" its a means of taking a corner while maintaining majority speed of the car without having to brake all the way its considered a racing technique. Why you think Japanese racers do this in grip racing? I'd like you to say that to the Drift King Keiichi Tsuchiya and "burn outs" is a means of warming up your tires in a drag event for better traction. i swear i dont know where some of you people get your info from.

OMG.. So many of you guys dont even know what you are talking about. Doing burnouts are only benificial to drag radials and slicks. They are made of softer compounds that will actually become softer and stickier as they are warmed up. For street tires they are useless and do absolutely nothing as street tires are not designed to become softer or sticker. Many studies have showed this. You only need to do a very light burnout only 2-3 seconds. As soon as you see the first sign of smoke you will know your tires are good. Unless you go to the track you should even say anything about burnouts doing nothing. And less air in your tires equal more traction. But too little air will be detrimental.

and how many ppl here actually own and drive a modded or tuned car? =\

Lmao, good luck having any rubber left. A few seconds is long enough to warm up the rubber. Haven't you ever been to the track?


lol agreed

there are two different tires one for street crusing and one for racing. the street crusing tires are the normals one u can buy anywhere. doing burnout on those are useless because even if it warms up its still wont be sticky so its a waste of gas and rubber. on the other hand if u had some racing tires then burning makes them nice and sticky and quickly so u can have a smoother race or cruse.
