  1. Oct 24, 2013 #1
    If a car is turning towards right, at which tyres more force will act i.e. left-side tyres or right-side tyres...??

    I am not so clear about it...

    I think it should be right-side but am not able to justify myself with reason...!!

    Assume the center of mass of the car is above where the tires contact the pavement, and that the car is accelerating to the right (it's turning to the right). What is the effect of the torque on the tires?

    Why don't you start by drawing a free-body diagram and show us what you know about all the forces acting on it?
