What do you do when you have a basically new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat with tires that are at the wear bars? You finish them off with some epic burnouts, obviously.

We should mention that you obviously order a new set of rear tires and don't destroy the old set until right before the new set is going to be put on.

Before the peanut gallery jumps in with, "Why aren't the burnouts bigger?! That thing has 707 horsepower, that was weak!"

Since the car's rear tires were already at the wear bars (go figure) for safety reasons we decided to lock the Hellcat in first gear to keep the tire rotations, speed, and heat down. This was done in an effort to prevent the tires from blowing out, and keep the car in control as the tires became gooey (which happened quickly).

Regardless, the burnouts (all four of them) were pretty epic and few were disappointed. After all, how often do you get to see a car that isn't on sale yet destroy—finish off—a set of tires?

Enjoy.
