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.

I am quite certain I could burn the V6 easily.....but am quite certain I never will. Even when my V8 gets here, I won't burn them either. I get on my V6 on the time but I don't won't to burn them. Man, I never realized how high these tires were. Heck I thought my Yukon tires were expensive lol

Ah. They way you presented it, one would not expect stock tires on a 108hp Hyundai.

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.
That would definitely make a big difference. The V6 manual Camaro can probably lay 100 yards of stripe...

My 170hp manual VW can probably burn off tires all day long. If traction control is off I don't even have to take off hard to burn rubber.

!LOL! I could manage to get mine to do it as well, a nice clutch pop and that little 3 cylinder sewing machine could spin the tires for a little bit.

My brother had an auto swift (pretty much the same as a metro).

He once spun (chirped, really) the tires trying to take off on a hill, and was ecstatic (this was during the time that I was driving the IROC). I told him it didn't count.
