What's the Difference Between Oversteer and Understeer?

Have you ever been driving and felt your car suddenly drift? This could be the problem if you have an issue with your front wheels, allowing your car to understeer and drift off-road or into another lane. In an understeer, your car moves wide, meaning that you haven’t applied enough pressure to turn your wheels. The opposite is true with an oversteer.

With an oversteer, you have likely turned your wheels too sharply, creating a narrow turn that will drive you into another lane of traffic or off the road. It’s difficult to correct an understeer or oversteer as you pick up speed, which is why you should always brake lightly if you feel that your axles are off when you start to steer into a turn.

Getting a tire checkup and having your steering wheel checked is important during bad weather seasons. Having issues with your wheels? Get a tire check-up at Audi Calabasas located in Calabasas, CA.
