While taking a turn when the tyre looses the traction or grip, it can result in understeer or oversteer.
How oversteer happens:Engineering tutorials
When a vehicle is taking a turn it normally moves towards the apex. The rear tyre looses adhesion or traction and
slips away. The driver or operator will have to turn the wheels to the opposite direction of the turn to hold the vehicle stable. The vehicle or car goes out of the road or track as the rear wheels skids away. This is called over steering. The video animation clearly shows how over steer occurs.
How to avoid over steer:
Over steer can be avoided by using soft rear tyres, by reducing the rear tyre pressure, softening rear spring etc.
