Hoonigans Roast the Tires on a 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

By -

2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty is on its third engine and second transmission. After the Hoonigans are done with it, it’s going to need a new set of rubber.

Mud flaps are a common sight on many large trucks. They keep debris from hitting following vehicles and the drivers of certain trucks from getting tickets. The Ford F-250 Super Duty in this video from The Hoonigans doesn’t drive through mud or gravel, but it sure could use something to block flying debris.

Hoonigan Bryan Moore stops by the office with his ’06 Super Duty. He’s used his truck to do a lot of things, such as tow vehicles out of sticky situations at the beach and in the sand dunes. Over time, those and other activities have taken their toll on Moore’s rig. It started life with the infamous 6.0-liter Power Stroke diesel V8. That gave up the ghost. Eventually, the replacement engine died. So did the original transmission. Now Moore’s running a new gearbox and a 6.2-liter diesel engine connected to a water/methanol injection system. Those changes and other performance components have resulted in roughly 700 horsepower and an astounding 1,300 lb-ft of torque, according to Moore’s estimation.

If you have any idea about what kinds of things the Hoonigans usually do, then you’ll know what’s coming next. Yep, that’s right: burnouts and donuts. Moore came prepared. He was aware he was going to do crazy, destructive things in his truck, so he brought along a set of beater tires he could abuse before bolting his street wheels and tires back on for the trip home.

In the small back lot of Hoonigan HQ, Moore swings the back end of his giant truck around in circles as the clouds of smoke grow larger. The plume starts at the tires, floods the bed with white smoke, and eventually fills the air as much as the roar from the Super Duty’s colossal engine. When it’s all over, the ground is covered in oily black circles and dark 11s. The once-new tires have partially disintegrated, leaving flecks of hot rubber all over the concrete, the lower sections of the rear fenders, the side view mirrors, and even the windshield. In other words, it’s just another day at the office for the Hoonigans. We don’t know what their pension plan entails, but we definitely have a clear picture of the workplace environment…and we like it.
