I'm pretty sure some, if not most of you have seen this video around... it seems a little tough/ dangerous to do this with modern FWD though... XD

I'd pay real good money to know how to set fire to the rubber like that.......real good money......that's automotive porn right there!

PS, just save every set that go bald and you have to replace anyways. Then you'll have a supply of throwaways to burn up with. Also, some auto shops set out tires that no longer have good tread wear for free. Most respectable ones anyways, I've seen a number of places that sell "used" tires.....not sure how ethical that is....they are replaced for a reason in my opinion.

Yeah- my friend with the 2002 camaro got 2 sets of rims and tires with his car when he bought it used and one set he has labeled "D**kin' Around" lol

If you watch closely, before he pulls away (around second 22-27), you can see a fireball in the smoke. The dude sprayed down some gasoline/flamable liquid and lit it with a remote lighter/ignition source. Old hotrod trick.

I saw the flame burst and figured it had to do with the old school exhaust flames....didn't know anything about spraying liquids...thanks for giving up the goods for free haha!

Yeah the flame thrower kits are great- it really has a lot to do with the content of emissions though- my little transaxel V6 couldn't put out that much flammable gas to ignite... lol

^^ The lighting tire rubber on fire is stupid. Flame thrower exhaust is okay.

I dunno if I can agree to that, made a pretty cool spectacle....I'd like to do it every time I had to stop!

I've caught that show a few times, it's pretty cool. I think that was the worst rip-off of "the stig" I have ever seen though.
