Carry the load resulting from the weight of the vehicle and all the overloads linked to dynamic movements of the vehicle, together with any aerodynamic overloads at high speed, at the same time absorbing the irregularities in the road.
Guide the vehicle along the trajectories decided by drivers.
Transmit the braking or acceleration force decided by the driver.
