I did that once, setting the ebrake to burn tire.
Does that hurt anything when we do that?-Toddster

Dunlop Sport A2 (225/60/16). They used to be called the D60A2, now they're called the Sport A2 Plus. I used these on my old Honda CRX and they stuck like glue. On my Bonnie when the factory Goodyears wore out, I got a full set of Sport A2'* and it was like night and day compared to the factory Goodyears. Through a wreck and a nail in a sidewall, I have two new Sport A2s in front and the ones in back should go anohter 10,000 miles. I also just put a full set of Sport A2 Plus tires on my wife'* 2001 Grand Prix GT, and again, it'* a night and day difference from factory.

Note: I did see a post from Willwren some time ago saying he tried the D60A2s and didn't like them, so he should be able to give more info, but I really like mine. I don't do any racing or track runs though, I just daily drive and sometimes have to do wet, windy roads over the Santa Cruz mountains, and I can vouch that the Dunlops stick to the road!

A 225/60R16 set of Starfire Fliteline IV (Cooper)... no, it doesn't burn rubber. A chirp at most. Lots of wheelspin only in the rain.
