In theory, and in practice, you are supposed to change tires, at the very least in PAIRS, both front or both rear; or ideally, all four.
The catch is you changed only 1 tire.
My Q is:
are the tires of the same brand/ tread? and tire pressure?... if no, that may be the source of your prob.
Consider also, that you only have 1 driving wheel at the rear at a given time. That is how differentials are designed... unless of course you have "posi-trac"
Incorrect. Both wheels are spinning at an even rate; only if you lose traction does all the power go to one wheel (one with less traction -- path of least resistance).
If you're going straight and are not breaking traction, both wheels are being spun at the same rate by the differential.
hmmm... torque, if that is the case, why is it that when you raise 1 rear-wheel off the ground, only that 1 tire will spin and the other will stay stationary. Isn't the what the internal spyder gear is used for?
I could learn something new here :-)
