Can you burn the tires in the v6?

Not that I would ruin the tires but is it possible to burn out and smoke the tires in the v6 auto? Or is the v6 too weak?

I've seen plenty of V6 Mustangs (barely 200 HP if that) do it, so I'm more than sure it will.

I can smoke the tires in my 108 horsepower hyundai. What makes you think the V6 would be anywhere close to "too weak?"

you can always get line locks if you really feel the need to roast the rear tires.

When I went to the dealer fri. To check on my stripes they said I had just missed some kid that had rented a V6 and he lit up the tires before I got there. It left 2 nice tire tracks! So yes it will definatly lay some rubber!

Dunno if this will answer the question but it doesn't look too good for the burnout:

I have a 2LT with the 20" Pirelli P-Zeros on it and I have not been able to spin the wheels. I haven't really hit it hard yet, since the car is brand new, but so far I haven't even heard a squeak out of it from a standing start, even in sport mode.

Most of the issues with smoking the tires on the V6 isn't due to power, but due to extreme grip and traction control. With the auto's I'm guessing a lot of people (hopefully not from here) haven't figured out they need to put it in M to have fun (sports mode). With the stick, you hit the gas and it just goes! May have to try and hold the break down to get the smoke rollin.

You mean, your 108hp lightweight FWD lame-tire Hyundai?

(I'm not saying that the V6 auto Camaro could or could not burn rubber, just that it's a tough comparison because the Camaro's got added traction to match its added power.)

V6 auto has open differential, so a one-wheel peel ought to be easy with all that torque as long as you know how to fully turn off traction control.

An automatic V6 will have a harder time burning the tires than an auto.. its the traction control and torque management that will give you the most trouble..Turn it off and it will make your life a lot easier.

I have a 2LT and they will not burn rubber on its own..even with traction off and in the M mode. When its wet Yes and in reverse Yes. I haven't touch the brakes yet and I don't intend too. The only time I will try this is a few days before I have to change my worn out tires (over $400 ea)....IMO.

I was playing with mine yesterday. With the V6, the only way you can get the tires to turn from a standing start is if the conditions are just right. (Moon in the right phase, etc.) LOL

But...in "M" with traction control off and playing with the brakes just right, you can get the tires to turn. Keep in mind that it is a very fine line between the rear "pushing" you forward and not getting the rear tires to turn. I did it once, realized it was possible, then stopped because I really do not want to wear out the 20's any sooner than I have to.

Keep playing guys and you'll find the magic combination. In short...yes it is possible to do. Do it too much and you're going to need money on hand for new tires.

Keep in mind also that the Pirelli's are sticky tires too.

Hope this helps!

Turn off the traction control, have a slight drag on the breaks and put it to the floor. It will smoke the tires all day long.

I have done it many times to show the V8 tools this car has power. I got down played again this weekend for having a V6 but no one wants to line them up.

Heh - at 92,xxx miles you think I'm still on the stock wheels? Heh - and I'm not the kind of owner to buy the cheapest rubber. I buy the best I can get for the size (which I admit still isn't a pirelli, but still).

No, actually I think most of the difference comes from the fact that I have a stick - and being able to control the clutch makes spinning the tires a LOT easier.

Do that often enough and you could experience the phenomena of tread separation at high-speed. Too costly all the way around. Be safe. The parts on today's vehicles, all manufacturers included, are supplied by the lowest bidder, generally speaking.

Thats why when I get my car, I'll be tracking down a really cheap set of wheels that will fit and some cheap tires for my "burnout rims."

Still going back and forth between a stripper 1LS and a 1LT with C&C - if I get the 1LS I'll be buying a set of 1LT wheels (and probably widening them so I can put 275s all around) and using the steelies to burn rubber.

Myself personally I don't plan on smoking the tires. If you get the RS package with the P-Zero tires they are about $450 each to replace. And from the tire codes the wear isn't very good on them.

Yes you can do a lay a patch of rubber down with the V6. I had mine a few days and said the hell with it. Took the traction control off and burned out. I didn't even have the pedal all the way to the floor. Then got home and realized that I am not able to rotate tires and figured I am not doing that anymore.

Yes your comments are taken into consideration because we all learn from it but when a hundred of you keep repeating the same thing and you do not even have the new Camaro can you please stop it. Yes you could do it on other models and makes but with what GM did on the LS/LTs (Automatics) it is very hard to do. They're made to take off fast with minimum to none spinning of tires. IMO.
