Wheel Slip on Your New & Used Wheels

May 27th, 2010

“What is wheel slip?”,  you may be asking. Well, let me go ahead & explain.

The technical definition is :  “The ratio of rotational speed of a braked wheel to that of an equivalent free-rolling wheel, expressed as a percentage. The slip is equal to the speed of a brake wheel divided by the speed of an unbraked wheel, expressed as a percentage” (http://www.answers.com/topic/wheel-slip); thank you Answers.com!

Anyway, as you can tell, it is a very complicated thing to understand. It’s like a formula, & some numbers, & some more numbers… so I’d rather give you MY definition: It’s just when your rear OEM Wheels rotate faster than your front factory original 2006 Jaguar XK8 wheels because you lose torque at a fast rate.

There are many variables that can relate to this… but this is just the basic information.

Going for a drive,
