During a burnout, a car’s tires can reach over 400F depending on the length and ferocity of the burnout. These high temperatures are caused by the friction of the rubber against the road surface.
Why should you not do burnouts?
Believe it or not, throttle control is huge when it comes to controlling a burnout. Too much throttle and the tires will break loose, but your engine will “bounce” off the rev limiter, momentarily cutting torque from the wheels. This can cause you to suddenly gain traction and shoot off in one direction or another.
