Forza Horizon 5: How to Build a Wheel Car

Building a wheeled car in Forza Horizon 5 may not be the most practical application of its upgrade system, but it’s a fun way to see how tuning works.

To build a wheelbarrow in Forza Horizon 5 is perhaps not the most practical application of its upgrade system, but it certainly brings joy to see any car drive on wheels. Forza Horizon 5 has almost unlimited customization options, and players can manipulate their vehicles to perform wheelies. Learning to build a wheeled vehicle is a great way to experience how much each upgrade and fine-tuning of settings affects vehicle performance.

Before messing with the parts of a vehicle, players should take the car they want to drive wheels with and run a few races in Forza Horizon 5. Competing in a few races before changing the performance of any vehicle is a great way to see how much everything has changed from the standard version of the car.

Building a wheeled car requires at least two things, a lot of horsepower and a heavy rear frame. Reducing the weight of the car’s front is an added bonus, but apart from the bumper, there are not many things that can ease the front load on cars in Forza Horizon 5. A rear-wheel drive car can also be designed by changing the settings for the front and rear of vehicles, such as tire grip, tire size, fine-tuning settings and the like.

How to build a wheeled car in Forza Horizon 5

Not all cars in Forza Horizon 5 can perform wheelies, and upgrading parts costs credits. The following settings can be applied to each car in an attempt to perform them:

  • Conversion: Install the largest available engine in conversion and a rear-wheel drive. Install a twin-turbo engine.
  • Weight reduction: Remove everything from the front of the car to lighten the weight, e.g. the front bumper.
  • Tire composition, width and rims: Install drag racing tires, thin tires at the front, grip tires at the rear and lightweight rims.
  • Driveline: Install all racing parts. Install a six-speed or higher transmission.
  • Spring and dampers: Fit rally springs and dampers.
  • Platform and handling: Install the running bar at the front and rear.
  • Engine: Completely upgrade the engine to its maximum horsepower.

The next set of options are all available from the tweak menu. In addition to wheeled vehicles, fine-tuning settings can help get high scores on PR stunts in Forza Horizon 5.

  • Tire settings: Tire pressure as low as possible at the rear and as high as possible at the front.
  • Adjustment settings: Align the adjustment and bring the angle of the front steering wheel as low as possible.
  • Heel bar settings: The front settings are set to soft as possible, the rear settings are as rigid as possible.
  • Spring settings: The front settings are set to soft as possible, the rear settings are as rigid as possible.
  • Rebound stiffness settings: The front settings are set to soft as possible, the rear settings are as rigid as possible.
  • Shock stiffness settings: The front settings are set to soft as possible, the rear settings are as rigid as possible.
  • Driving height: Maximum height for both front and rear settings.
  • Differential settings: Maximize the differential settings.
