Please could somebody explain to me whether & how wide wheels give more grip upon the road surface?
In my head - wider wheels would give more traction, better handling etc.. because there is more surface in contact with the road - therefore more friction etc...
my physics lessions at school always stated that pressure was = force / area.
So, if the wheels are wider and therefore there is more area for the same weight of the the car, the pressure becomes less.
So does this result in less grip / traction / etc... ?????
Can anyone help me!?
