How many wheels does a car need?

How many wheels does a car need?

Small survey: How many wheels does a car need at least so that it can drive and keep its balance? What is meant is the number of wheels required and available as standard or in a prototype. So no jokes like on three wheels and one rim, but normal driving.

Of course, this is not a joke, the steering wheel and spare wheel do not count. And what I understand by a car, I also want to define:

1. A vehicle that has the bodywork typical of a car for its construction period.

2. A vehicle that is driven by a car engine or a comparable unit and not by an engine that is typical for two-wheelers, such as 50, 125 or 250 cc two-stroke engines and the like.

3. A car cannot be defined by the number of seats. There are also cars with only one seat (racing cars). One of the cars that can or could drive with "X" wheels offered space for four (or more?) Passengers.

4. A car cannot be defined by the type of power transmission: in the early days of cars, the engine power was often transmitted to the driven axle via a chain. And today there are motorcycles with a cardan shaft.

It would be nice if everyone gives reasons why they think a certain number of bikes are necessary.

There is a resolution when all possibilities have been mentioned. That is why it would be nice if someone who knows exactly how many wheels I mean does not “poke” beforehand, post a picture or a URL.

Let's go!

So I still have 100% :) Did I win then? : D

@ Carlo1954, what is there for the winner :).

Hi!

The subject of how many wheels a car needs to drive doesn't seem to be a big hit, or are all sleds already on the road?

Unfortunately, one can only gain from wisdom.

So long

well, in most mr.bean films you can see that this is not really enough :)

it looks more stable here, would theoretically be enough for purists without it

that safety stays on the track & in the past, jamal nen KaRo was enough too ?!

but in my opinion it should be because of security & because of usable space

& weight being 4wheels on a car!

Now don't push

after all, the question was only asked about 4 1/2 years ago! ;): D

I type on

2 in front

2 rear

2 left

2 right and

1 on every corner

makes 12 together!

Otherwise, a two-wheeler would also be a self-driving vehicle that can move independently of rails and of its own accord (= definition of an automobile).

Does the thread creator even exist, so that after more than 4 years we can no longer be tortured?

Wait, now you can see when the user was last logged in;)

2 very wide like a roller should also be enough.

How are you supposed to be able to steer sensibly with this constellation? The necessary power steering would go beyond the scope ...

Shift in weight! A computer controls a lead weight from left to right. If the driver wants to go to the right, the weight is shifted to the right. Logically, the tires would then have to be slightly rounded on the underside. Tire wear would be problematic. Just a little thought experiment! ;)
