 I just read this in another thread..

 

Do the tires really affect driving?

Yes it does - all tire types change slightly from one another. No statistics change but you can experiment and find out that it does vary the way it handles / drives. 

 

For Example , Offroad effects obvious all terrain better , if you notice once u hit dirt you go faster.

 

                       Tuner gives more grip to the street

 

                        Muscle gives a more driftier ride , etc etc

 

 

..it's an interesting theory, but is there any proof.?

 

Will off road tyres on my Sultan RS make it a better dirt car than it already is? If I'm using my Bhodi in town, should I be using tuner tyres? It could get expensive switching tyre types to suit conditions.

I highly doubt it. I think whichever option is the stock for that vehicle decide how it handles on different terrain. Could be wrong as I haven't tested it but it doesn't seem likely to affect it noticeably.

Yeah I feel that it's unlikely too... but thought I'd throw the question out there.

Not sure about the different street tires. But as that post said about the off-road, they will make a car preform better in the dirt. I've tried it on a few different vehicles (never my Sultan, might try that tonight) and I've always noticed a change in speed while off-road.

No, tires do not have any effect on the cars performance, on or off-road.

Until someone posts the code showing the contrary, or a demo video proving it otherwise- it's just a visual modification.

Whats your take on preformance mods... such as engine and transmission? Simply visual money wasters if the car already has maxed out acceleration??

Engine and transmission does increase acceleration beyond the lsc stats bar as the lsc stats bar only show part of it, once you get into a custom race, you'll see the stats bar is longer than what you see in lsc

Right, this I understand, but what about the tires? Which is the discussion. I was simply asking the guy that said tires change nothing how he thought of performance mods...

For Online, my favorite vehicle is a Rancher XL and is tuned fully with offroad tires yet my friend in an Engine 3 upgrade with stock tires goes faster than I do offroad. I think the offroad bogging down is dumb, especially on cars meant to go offroad. That said, I doubt tires change anything. Just the looks (such as lowrider having more round/smooth tires while offroad has big chunks on it).

Hmm, if you drive along a steep slope you do not seem to drift as much to the side with off-road wheels, also they do not seem to have as much grip on tarmac as a sports tire. So I do think there are subtle differences, but I wouldn`t bet my life on this ;)

All joking aside, my friend was experimenting with tire types while racing, and claims offroad tires give his entity so much more grip, and I'm not gonna lie, I get turbo starts and he still overtakes me off the line.


There might be some truth to this idea.

i have off road tires on my sultan just because it looks bad ass. :cool: i thought it handled great off road with regular tires aslo.

The different types of tires can heavily affect handling. Muscle wheels seem to have the least amount of lateral grip wheras Tuner wheels seem to have the most. Go steal a Phoenix, easily the squirreliest handling car in the game and swap out the wheels for Tuner wheels.

Cool gonna try that on my Vigero which is just as squirrelly as the Pheonix I used to have.
But I have sports wheels on there now and looks so damn bitching.
Pro touring look to it..

So many things are in this game with no explaination from Rockstar. Why are we supposed to figure all this stuff out for ourselves?

Take a fully modded Carbonizzare round the block with the most expensive out of every single wheel type on it, 1 after the other and then tell me it doesn't make a difference.

 

I think if you do this you will notice the difference in how the back end either grips or drifts out round the corners very quickly... I noticed a difference by the 1st corner and a couple of crew mates have too.

 

I'm not going to post a video, just try it and see.

Wait, are you saying the price of the wheels also has an influence?

I did some tests with franklins buffalo and everything seemed around the same though the muscle felt less grippy and the high end felt like more acceleration overall I think they are for looks... (Although id like to believe otherwise)
