This Is What The Inside Of Your Tire Looks Like During A Burnout

Tires are one of the most important parts of a car’s performance, and the only part of your vehicle that is supposed to touch the ground. Recently, these underrated engineering marvels received viral coverage when Youtuber, Warped Perception, placed a GoPro inside a tire and drove. This unique perspective shows how the tires are treated badly every day during normal driving. Today, Warped Perception will take a look at what the inside of a tire looks like when you actively abuse it during a burnout.

Burnout in its most basic form is spinning a car’s tires at high speed while the car itself is stationary. This clinical description of an exciting action may remove some of the wow factor, but it is important when we understand our topic before continuing. 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 rubbing of rubber against the pavement.

So what goes on inside a tire that you are actively working to turn into plumes of white smoke for fun? Well, just like the depth of the ocean in a hurricane, the surface is disturbed but the experience is surprisingly serene. The tire deforms slightly to absorb a road imperfection under the tire, but otherwise everything looks pretty calm. This is until the tire delaminates and then explodes. Then the tire fills with debris and smoke and nearly breaks the GoPro filming the incident.

Tires are an incredible engineering marvel and seeing them from the inside gives a whole new perspective on tire appreciation. A new shot of cars in action shows how tough they are to handle the road and also a bit of a hooning for car appreciation.
