Tire properties are some of the most important factors causing vehicle drift. In this paper, the influences of wheel alignment and tire properties on vehicle drift are discussed. The relationship between the wheel alignment of a vehicle and vehicle drift are examined. Also analyzed is the relationship between vehicle drift and front tire torque by using a four‐wheel model while considering tire characteristics. The calculated front tire torque is compared with vehicle drift.
