So I know for a mass m with velocity v to travel in a circular motion, there has to be a centripetal force towards the center, but I'm having trouble intuitively visualizing why friction is directed towards the center? The way I see it, is for the car to turn , say left, the wheels rotate to the left, and as they're rotating they sort of "grab the ground and push back on it". As a result of Newtons 3rd law, the ground pushes back on the wheels, therefore wouldn't the force be acting in the plane the wheels are rotating, instead of perpendicular to them? I've attempted to show what direction friction acts on the tire. I know this has been asked several times on this thread, but after days of looking up different threads, I still can't get it to sink in, thanks I appreciate any help.
