Wait, what?

Why would a brake-stand result in wear on the front brakes?  All the front brakes should be doing (I'm assuming you're in a RWD vehicle) is clamping the front tires so they don't spin, they shouldn't have any friction on them at all.
I'm assuming his parking brake is the e-brake which holds the back 2 tires. He would have a FWD car and using the brakes to hold the back 2 tires would be TONS of friction on the front 2 tires especially with much bigger brakes compared ot the rear.

I'll give you that, but like I said, I was assuming RWD car.  Best way to do a burn out in a FWD is on a wet road or in a puddle.

No, actually I'm not.  I'm from the South.  Around here, if we have an unfinished road, it's gravel.  Houses, sadly enough, are normally built, and THEN a road is built to them, not the other way around.

Go to youtube and search for the helluva cruise, people around here just paving back roads for people to do burnouts on. One vid was in a sub that never got any farther than a paved road, another was done in a half finished sub with like 8 houses and about 2 people live in the place. 3rd was an unfinished road in a sub off some back road that has a golf course in it. Sure the golfers loved the drifting fog.

Lots of places in my area look just like that. Ever
since the housing market crashed, all the developers
have got a ton of new neighborhoods that are sitting
empty with NO construction going on and no potential
buyers. Not a good thing.
