It got cold here in Cincinnati for the first time this weekend, and my tires were spinning like crazy when I acelerated until they warmed up a little bit. I felt like a race car driver weaving back an forth on the road to warm them up. I can't imagine what it will be like in December...
I guess it's time to get those winter tires! Any suggestions for ones that aren't going to harden up on me?
Being encounter these situations here in California. YES, I said California. It being pretty cold here at night, and when I just leave the parking lot from school, I notice that the rear wheels are spinning quite a bit, even under moderate acceleration. I wonder what it will be like in wet pavements?
But we cannot do that on the street, right?
I guess we just need to be a bit careful for the first few minutes after having the car sit in the cold for a long time.
BTW, those dragsters do not need to do burn out to warm up their tires. They actually did a study and find out that because of the amount of power they put on those tires, they can reach their operating temperature in milliseconds. Everybody in the drag world admit that doing burn out is just to entertain the audience.
