This week’s Tire Shredding Tuesday video once again looks at a vehicle that is anchored down during a burnout and while some might considering that to be cheating – this video of a 4th gen Cummins Ram obliterating all four tires is just too awesome to pass up.
The vehicle in action this week is a 4th generation Ram 3500 powered by a Cummins Turbo Diesel. While this truck packs more than enough torque to easily smolder the rear tires, the gooseneck hitch has a tow strap hooked to it with the other end connected to a big, heavy dumpster. Why the need to anchor this powerful Ram?
To turn all four tires into a four piles of rubber and a massive plume of thick smoke without any possibility of the Ram HD moving during the burnout. Not surprisingly, the project was a total success as this is one of the nastiest four wheel drive burnouts I have ever seen…anchored down or not. At the end of the video, the cameraman pans to the sky to show the huge cloud of smoke before panning down to show us the loose rubber scattered around the area of the burnout. We also get a good look at the damage done to the tires which serves to remind us all that great burnouts come with a big price when you end up replacing all four skins.
