    How much smoke will come off the tires if you bleach them and spin? Is it burnout of the month smoke or what? and how much does it take? A thin coat or a bucket full? will it damage the tires or paint?

    BTW, Ive seen way longer burnouts in way hotter climates than CO. that didnt catch fire so the bleach has something to do w/the fire

    Dude, bleach is how to leave FLAMING tire tracks. If you have over 130 HP you are going to light the bleach on fire. If you do it right, it will leave flaming tracks ala Back to the future. If you do it wrong you will look like a fireball. Have fun!!!

    man, cover your tires in soap for a big burn out. My dad tells this story about how one day at school he put soap on the tires of his beaver wood station wagon and roasted em until they thought his car was on fire. muhahaha :)

    Milan, do you know how much power it takes to light your wheels on fire without bleech? It's just fun for getting rid of old tires... or making civics look fast. :D

    You should see enough smoke with out bleach. Just put on your Ebrake and start revving.

    I've seen an older RX7 do a 3 minute burnout until his motor finally blew. I think I still got the video on my harddrive.

    It was freakin awesome.

    Are you people listening???????? Bleach will light your tires on fire. End of story. If you just want smoke use soap or buy a V8.
