I agree with Shan2nu ,

Its advisable not to do it , but incase u really need to do it then i guess 1st Gear is the best .

It's not all that bad guys...Only once in a while rite..

I wouldn't recommend doing it on tar roads, but in gravel wouldn't do that much harm. And does doing wheelspins in 2nd gear cause more damage than in 1st?

Nope. 1st gear spins are the killers.

But, i don't understand the need for wheelspins!!! What exactly are you achieving from it? It causes nothing but damage.

Actually, they are useless. They serve no productive purpose. They damage your car and slow you down.

It's a diff thing if you're taking part in a burnout contest. But on a regular car, it's worthless.

Wheelspins have only one use: to clean up your tyres, or warm them up slightly. Had to do one last night, because I inadvertently drove onto a half-tarred road.

Best time to do it with minimal damage is on sand, gravel or wet roads. Since there'll be very lil traction it shouldn't be such a big damage. Having bald tyres would also help a lot!

yea i guess its a lot easier for the car to slide. but when ur doign a wheelspin i guess the squeel is wht really gets peoples attention unless ur smoking ur tyres too. i guess the only advantage to doing it on sand is tht a lot of the sand will be displaced having a dramatic effect
