New Tires, No Burnout?

Hey Guys, I gotta 03 Gt 5 spd. I just got brandy new tires on it. They are summitomo htrz 245-45-R17's. Before the new tires, I had no problem churping into second or doing a burnout. I dont do either of these much btw, but just the other day i gave it a try with the new tires and i couldnt really get it to churp. I tired it a few times because it bothered me and i got it to churp maybe once out of the 5 tries. Also the burnout was a complete fail the car just wanted to keep going forward . Im hoping its just the tires having much better grip. I just get super paranoid that somethings wrong. Its all stock except for flowmaster exhaust and a CAI. Any thing that might be wrong? Or am i just being a little on edge, and this is normal for new tires??

Probably just has more grip now. No biggie.

That's just the better grip from the new tires. Think of it as a good thing

Sumitomo HTR-Z's are the worst tire ever for traction, but they don't make any noise when they're spinning. So you may not be getting that "chirp", but they're probably spinning more than what you had before.

Worst tire I've ever seen for traction.

Unless you're on super sticky road, I assure you that dumping the clutch from 3000rpms on Sumitomo HRT-Z will result in laying down some rubber.

Although, this isn't the best thing for your car, and I'd suggest against doing it too often on the stock axles.

Enjoy the newfound traction and ability to actually accelerate in 1st gear!

+1 on them being crappy for traction but then again, why try to fry new tires or be super hard on the drivetrain? I wouldn't worry about it at all.
