has anyone had these, or like products? basically im in the market for a tire that puts out colored smoke. me and some friends are taking footage of our whole "racing summer" and ive decided that a rolling burnout for a few miles would be sweet......so i started looking for the hardest compound, cheapest tire i could find....then i got the idea "if im gonna do a couple mile long burnout....COLORED SMOKE!!!!" the shinko smoke bomb looks decent, but the price is a little on the high side being as im literally going to use this tire for one day. whatever i dont burn off on the road the video is taken on, the rest will be left on my street right in front of my driveway(my neighbors are going to love me after that) so whats everyones take on these tires, or do you have a recommendation for a different tire....my size is 180/55/17...which happens to be 1 of the only 2 sizes the shinko tire comes in.

I've seen tires for cars that throw colored smoke. Khumo makes them IIRC, and they are expensive. Like $180 apiece for burnout tires, but the smoke is really colored and looks cool as hell

Don't get em. Unless you are a burn out nut don't bother. I talked to a Shinko rep, and he said that they were produced for stunters and show offs.

did you read my whole op? it will be purchased for a "show off" purpose. and will be mounted, burned down to wires, dismounted, and my current tire put back on, all in the same day.

where is B-town? bradenton? bonita? im in ft. myers

If you have the money to burn (literally) I'd do it. But I'm a budget build guy, so if I buy tires, I try to make them last and save burnouts and shenanigans for when I have new tires waiting to go on
