Default peeled out tires

Can you tell if tires have been peeled out on.. not by like material in the treads, but like in tread wear or something? Mine have been chirped one or two times.. and my mom has been investigating my car a little more then I like her to. I just want to stay out of trouble. I haven't rotated the tires, but the unfortunate part is, I have a rim which is scratched up pretty badly, and it is obvious, so I can't really hide anything by rotating the tires every spin around the block.

Then stop beatin' the crap out of it!!

Seriously though, there'* no way to tell if someone has burned a little rubber, just by looking at the tires, unless it'* drastic wear. Since you can't rotate them, I'd just say stop burnin the tires up. It'll cost a lot less preserving the life of your tires rather than buying new ones, and/or facing the heat from the Tire Police (aka Mom).

I can't light up the tires, bud. I can just chirp them at a light, if I touch the throttle JUST right. I would like to keep my transmission alive, so I don't neutral bomb, and I did one roll back by accident [in a hurry, pulling out of a parking space, and dropped it in drive before I had fully stopped], and I peeled out a little.. but nothing huge, but it was a two wheel one .

I just want to make sure I am not making anything obvious.. because well, my mom pays too much attention to stuff, except the fact I am always running on fumes.. oh well.

If you can't tell, don't you think your mom would have no clue?

The only person or thing that is going to notice you chirping tires is your tranny.

My mom is crazy, crazy people.. are just that. Who knows.. the driver'* side tire has something on it, but It doesn't look like anything more than the side it sits on [car is driven seldomly].

Sol: loL! That is very true.. my tranny already hates everyone.. excluding me, but REALLY hates my mom. I remember she needed the car one weekend to get dog food, and couldn't get it in reverse, 3rd, or 4th.. I laughed my *** of, and got it in gear instantly. .

If you looked at my front tires you wouldn't find any signs of burnouts...but the rubber plastered around the wheel well and along the underside of the rocker panels all the way to the rear wheels gives it away a bit

Cheers,

We had to drive accross dry grass at Woodburn at the end of the day. PontiacDad, 2000SilverBullet, driverjohn2005 and I all had dry grass stuck all over the sticky rubber and vht all over the wheels, wheelwells, etc. Looked like a halloween hayride for awhile.
