The van is running on cross-ply. My van is a 8 seater model and the last row is now removed to accommodate the cargo. Whenever the van is loaded i notice very less skidding compare to running load free.
Now my question is whether it happening due to cross-ply tires or there is some problem in the differential. Shifting to radial tire will help the cause?
Can you guys put light on my issue and give suggestion?
Hi Vikash, Omni is a rear wheel drive. Considering its a used car, how good are the tyres? I would suggest you get some new rubber (at least 2) and replace the rear ones.
Will give you the needed grip that you need.
