How much tire does peeling out kill?

How much damage is done to a tire when after a peel out or a "chirp of the tires"?

Does it create uneven wear in spots, or does it eliminate tread life off the whole wheel?

It probably does not wear too much, unless it visably leaves tires marks, smoke, or a strong smell.

If the street is wet, I would think almost nothing happens, as there is not much friction.

Easy way to tell is just compare your rear and front tires.

On Intrepids, I wouldn't worry about it. If you had car that could actually keep the tires spinning at ease, then I'd worry about it.

Yeah, one of my 2 cars can spin the tires EASILY..........and it's not the Intrepid :p

Don't worry about spinning the tires on your Intrepid..........and if you can, they're probably cheap tires anyways.

I can spin them for about 2 seconds and thats it, I wont worry about doing damage to them. My Goodyear GA's though, I can make those things fly!

I "peel-out" more than the normal guy i'd say. Sometimes for fun, sometimes i'm pissed at some guy who cut me off or something.. .

I should go take a pic of my tire treads. Their pretty ugly

Trust me, my 20" 255 width BFG G-Force tires do NOT spin. I spun the stock Michelin crappy tires quite nicely......but can't spin these :(

How much performance do those monsters take away anways, Avenger?

I'll assume your 15.594 run was made on stock wheels?

Just rotate the fronts to the back once a year or so and it'll even out. The drives always wear more anyway because of the extra strain of accelerating the car, (and steering on a FWD).

If you do enough burnouts to worry about the tires I'd be more conserned about the tranny taking a crap... :icon_conf

It will wear out the center of the tire over time.

I go thru a set(2) of Michelin HydroEdges every 2 years or so with my chirping habbits :p
I rotate them once a year.

i guess road conditions matter too.... LOL...

My friend always burns out in his van HEHE.... i guess its soo heavy he can actually keep them spinning. But my trep will just make a chirp on normal roads and then be on its way.

I did notice the edge thread kinda rising up on the stock michelins...

I'd be more concerned about doing damage to the transmission components on an Intrepid than I would about tire wear. If you beat up an Intrepid, it will beat you back. Generally in the wallet.
