Street tires...if ya do a good burnout with slicks they get sticky and probably bog ya down.
And if just for some good smoke and not a track run then definitely don't waist your slicks on a burnout!
Get some used street tires n burn'em up!!

What is your car setup and what tires. Might not take as much heat as you think since you're not hitting them as hard with the auto

It's going to depend upon several factors, such as tire and pavement temps, how well the rear brakes are grabbing, how much rubber is already on the ground if you are at the track and how well your car is running on any given day.


If you do them much I would invest in a Line Lock so you are not burning up the rear brakes while you are doing them. A line lock will allow you to lock just the front brakes only saving the rear brakes and reducing the strain on your engine and transmission. Since you are running an auto transmission an additional transmission cooler would also be a good idea to take some of the heat out of the transmission and help prevent damage to it.

I can spin mine really easily and they tend to make a lot of noise especially on a launch, but I've yet to see any smoke. They also don't leave marks. I think some tires just smoke more than others.

How old are they? They may have hardened and need treating.

They've only got roughly 5,000 miles on them and the grip is great.

no real point in doing them other than "look at me wasting tires for no real reason!" but you just hold the brake and push in the gas on an auto, not much else to it. For manual same concept but you have to manage the clutch in there.

No real point to burn out=heat up slicks?
No race tire of any kind is any good with out heat, slicks need lots of heat.. Street tires need a little as well but it very easy to over heat street tires.. Street tires when over heated will actually push oils out and become more slick then when cold.

Very true, if you are at the track you have to warm those slicks up.

I missed the context of this as doing burnouts in parking lots and such vs at the track where they are actually useful sorry for that lol wasnt paying attention to the topic location.

Out in public I dont see the point is what I was getting at.

... Does op actually want to give us information to go off of? The tire you are using and power of the car will determine what burnout you need

Nitto drag radials. Much different than a slick.

The nitto's require a pretty good burnout (some smoke from the tires) to hook. What air pressure are you running and what size?

Agreed. The only thing a slick and a drag radial have in common is that they both go on a wheel. hehe

with an auto and drag radials, go around the water box and then back into the water; spin the tires slightly in the water and then pull out and TURN OFF YOUR TRACTION COTROL, the press the brake and fluctuate the throttle in my 5.0 I would allow my car to shift into second before I quit the burnout....most of the time my DRs were so sticky it sounded like tape...I was able to get 1.8 sixty foots with a stock torque convertor in a 2011 5.0 automatic...hope this helps good luck
