I don't do burnouts very often, as much fun as they are, because they leave a hell of a mess! I hate cleaning up the bike afterwards lol.
However, I can tell you that the best tires for burnouts are the ones that are OLD. I mean, crackin old. The older the tire, the harder the rubber compound, the more smokey it will be! I desperately need to get my VLX back up and running again, it has a tire that's 8 years old and is begging to get burned off.
