Why would a 4x4 go into 4hi-4lo but when you start moving and give it a little gas the tires spin?

Bicycle tires start at a little over 3/4 inch for high speed racing tires, going up through 1.5 inch for light road going tires to 2.25 inch for knobbly off-road tires.

If you apply the brakes it can stop it moving.

Bjs sells a variety of tires and because they are such a respected brand you can have a little assurance of their quality.

Friction between the tires and the road. Without that kind of friction, we'd never be able to start moving, and wouldn't be able to stop!

Directional tires feature arrows on the sidewall that indicate what direction the tire should rotate when the vehicle is moving forward.

Cheap tires are not a good choice when buying tires. You want a tire that is dependable. You may have to spend a little bit more, but Coker tires are worth the money. You can buy Coker tires from your dealership or Faulsaks tires.

the screeching sound you hear is simply friction. the tires stopped turning, but the car is still moving. the tires are being drug on the pavement

The force of friction is what "grips" tires to the track. If there was no friction, the cars wouldn't be able to turn, heck, they wouldn't be able to start moving in the first place!

Since cars were first made tires were always rubber.

My 71' squareback tires are 165/80R15 Hope that helps a little

If the tires sound out of balance but the car is not shimmying, it could be that the balancing weights fell off one of the wheels. Noisy tires are also tires that have too little air.

The engine causes the tires of the vehicle to turn. The tires are made of rubber in order to maximize the friction (traction) between the tires and the concrete. It is the tires and the force of friction which causes a vehicle to move forward (or backward, for that matter).

get new tires.if its while your moving? let off the gas but no brakes and just steer to where you want to go.

They will fit, but are a little narrow. I have a Taurus and run it on 215/65/15 tires.

Interesting - static friction is greater than moving friction; but if the car is not in a skid, then the part of the tires in contact with the road is not moving ... thus static friction holds in both cases.

It means to actually start whatever it is you're about to begin. "Rubber" refers to your vehicle's tires -- if you put the rubber onto the road, you are rolling your vehicle along the highway and moving along.

need a little more info........

Because they will leak little air as times go by. Eventually the tires go flat.

you have to push it to start because the clutch is too light to cleanly start off normally, without spinnign the tires. if you spin the tires (in a race car) you risk snapping the axle, and unnecessary tire spin.

Because you are putting stoppers onto your moving tires, so it makes some noise.

In rainy season, moving vehicles on the road will skid due to the loss of friction when the tires encounter water on the road.

Origin: Unless you can fly, something must be in contact with the road when moving on it - the rubber on the tires, the soles of the shoes, the hooves of the horse. So, when you start out on a journey overland, you are hitting the road.

To curve in a circle, the car's tires push outside against the road; the road pushes inward against the car's tires.
