The beauty of a Cummins Turbo Diesel engine in the Ram Heavy Duty lineup is its monster torque and that torque converts into the kind of power needed to destroy tires. In this week’s Tire Shredding Tuesdays feature, we get to watch a later 3rd gen Ram 3500 dually absolutely cremating all four rear tires in a smoke show that is tough to rival.
While this Ram doesn’t actually shred the tires from what we can see in this short video, it puts such a serious smokin’ to them for almost a minute that there couldn’t have been much left of them when the driver finally let the Cummins powered pickup ease away from the burnout box. When you watch the video, take careful notice of just how quickly this dually Ram has smoke just blowing out of the rear wheel wells. If this was in a Hollywood movie I would assume that there was some sort of video editing trickery at play but in this case – it is just a Cummins Turbo Diesel Ram punishing all four of its rear tires.
