F-150 Burnout has Smoke, Sparks and an Explosion: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday
F-150 uses V8 power to put on an excellent smoke show until at least one of the rear tires fails.
This week’s “Tire Smokin’ Tuesday” video comes to us from the YouTube channel of Jace Van Vliet and it features a 12th generation Ford F-150 cooking up some wicked donuts. Surprisingly, after about 30 seconds of rolling, spinning burnouts, one of the tires begins to fail. This leads to sparks in the smoke. As the fun continues, that tire gets progressively worse before eventually exploding!
Sadly, there are no details on this truck, but we know from the styling that this truck is from the 2009 through 2014 model years and we know from the sound that it is powered by a V8 engine. Ford offered four different V8s during that era, so it could be the 5.4-liter Triton, the 5.0-liter Coyote, or one of two 4.6-liter Triton engines.
It also seems to be a little louder than your average F-150 from that era, so in addition to the aftermarket wheels, this Ford pickup may have an aftermarket exhaust system. It also smokes the rear tires pretty easily, so the owner may have added some extra power, but we don’t know for sure.
All we know is that this F-150 done some righteous burnouts, painting thick, black lines on the pavement before a tire gives up.
Cooking the Donuts
The video begins with the F-150 rolling slowly away from the camera in the dark as the driver whips the rear end around and guns the engine, causing the back tires to begin spinning hard as the engine speed soars. Within a few seconds, smoke begins to pour from the rear wheels as the truck spins around and around, marking up the pavement and surrounding the truck in a cloud of smoke.
Just before he half-minute mark in the video, you can see that there are some sparks coming from the passenger’s side rear tire and on the next time that the truck whips around, the sparks are intensifying. At that point, the driver slows the truck down and keeps it straight, roasting the tires hard as the sparks appear to turn to fire.
As the truck races off into the distance with smoke spewing from one tire and sparks from the other, we can hear the tire explode as the F-150 rolls to a stop in the darkness.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
