Don't you understand it's all a load of rubbish? The wheel type and external mods don't make a difference.
It's like people testing all the cars of a single class on the same race for five laps or more. They would conclude vehicle X is the fastest due to quickest lap times.
A different person doing the same test could conclude vehicle Y was the fastest. This isn't down to modifications of any sort, simply using correct racing lines, throttle control and proper braking techniques.
In the exact same regard or circumstances people could be drawing the same conclusion about wheel types and spoilers etc.
There's also a video on YouTube about somebody testing vehicles acceleration - once when upgraded until the acceleration bar statistic was full, once with all the upgrades. On timed straight line drags they found no difference between the results.
The carbonizzare is the fastest accelerating sports class, because if you come off the gas and hit the handbrake and then come onto the gas again at the right time - usually in second gear, the rear wheels will backspin leaving marks on the road, and you will actually see the car jolt forward/ camera move. You can temporarily pull away from any car with this method. The Phoenix is also capable of this, but not as much.
Honestly, on topic, the wheels don't make a difference. This isn't a racing game with proper racing physics and dynamics.
If you're noticing changes, good for you. But I can tell you it's most likely in your mind as I don't notice any differences. And I'm someone who comes from a racing game background having played Gran Turismo 1 to the latest and similarly with Forza and PGR's.
If the tread on the tyre chances, the handling of the vehicle will change. If the tread doesn't change it won't. Hence, in GTA, off road wheels will make a difference both on and off road but the others are purely aesthetic. So go for whichever one pleases you the most.
Note: I've tested all classes of wheel type on all classes of vehicles.
You do realize that High End Wheels, Sport Wheels , Muscle, Low Rider and Tuner wheels... ALL HAVE DIFFERENT TIRE TREAD, but tire thread is not the only that is not the only indicator of handling changes though, there is a huge difference in traction between the different wheel types. Some add oversteer some add understeer, I elaborated on this earlier. The handling does change, it may seem a slight difference to you in FreeRoam when your not racing, but if your racing trying to hit every turn at the highest speed the difference is night and day.
Stop arguing already. Spoilers are simply aesthetic. They didn't include such a ridiculously advanced physics engine to account for every little aerodynamic part on the vehicle. And like some guy said earlier, spoilers don't make you go faster. They slow you down. Which does not happen in-game.
Besides, a spoiler on a Comet is highly useless as it doesn't go fast enough or is light enough to lift off the ground. You would need a spoiler on an Adder or a Turismo or something.
No, I will never agree with you. I know what I know. They did put an advanced physics engine, which takes into account your speed, and the aero mods on your vehicle. THE FASTER YOU GO, THE MORE DOWNFORCE YOU HAVE, THE MORE DOWNFORCE YOU HAVE, THE MORE GRIP... see for yourself. Unless you have tested it foryourself you will not know. Do a slalom test, with and without. They are not only aesthetic, they didnt add almost unnoticeable little plastic pieces to go on the front of the vehicle to do nothing. There is a damn reason rockstar add ALL THESE aero mods in..
You probably have not tested and seen the difference downfroce makes on your vehicles. If you dont believe my downforce theory, than you actually test it yourself. What I say is actual facts, not opinions and not fake. No crap this is not Grand Turismo, but Rockstar did take into account alot of vehicle dynamics, including the air flowing around and over your car.
SPEED + AERO Mods (Canards/ Wing/ Spitters) = Downforce = Grip
The comet is very light and it has no engine in the front, if you know anything about rear engine cars they have lift. Comet is one of the lightest rear engine cars, in GTA V, if not the lightest. The Comet has VERY HIGH lift, even at low speeds you can see the whole front end come up during acceleration, and you have LESS grip at lower speed in a comet, than you do at high speed. The lack of weight in the front causes this, there is no engine, no driveline in the middle and no transmission in the middle its all in the rear, so the majority of weight is the rear.. At high speeds, the effect of the the Canards and Front Splitter come in reduce this lift and add downforce, which puts pressure on the front increasing traction.
No matter what you or ANYONE says I stand firm on it and unless you have tested it YOURSELF you simply dont know.
