Base GT Tires

Until I get a chance to upgrade wheels/tires, I'm going to run with the stock all season 235/50's. In most cases stock tires don't respond well to a big burnout so I just basically clean them off but ive heard these tires actually benefit from a good burnout. Can someone clarify please?

I have heard people say both... I can say that I felt like I was getting better traction after doing a burnout, but it was very cold (42 degrees).

Most of my racing has been on street tires, in my opinion I always got a better launch and could push the car harder by just cleaning them and barely warming them, basically just popping it to the floor for just a second and letting off, that works best for me, just make sure you slightly take out the slack in your drive train, that slack will make a street tire break traction like a freak lol

I have always heard NOT to do a burnout on street tires as they tend to lose traction at high temps...a quick spin to dry them of after the water box has always worked best for me..or avoid the water box all together!..
IMO I dont think 42° is too cold,but trying to hook on street tires is always an issue!.

Some people tell me that burnouts will just make street tires slicker. Others say these tires respond well to heat. I personally just avoid the waterbox and give it a quick spin to remove debris. I think I get decent traction for street tires. I suggest doing 2 runs, with and without a burnout and seeing what works best for you. Either way, practice launching at different rpms to see what gives you the best 60'.
