The EO smart connecting car disposes of a distributed power train -
each wheel is driven separately. What's more, its wheels can be
deflected by 90 degrees which enables the car to move sideways. Thus,

The arthropods flex the second joint of each leg to move sideways, although some crabs can walk forwards as well.
In the case of the EOssc2, the car turns its wheels to manoeuvre and mimic this movement.

Besides diagonal and sideways manoeuvreability, the other options are doing a turnabout and shrinking from 8 feet to 5 feet without compromising seating comfort. The technology that enables such a feat is that each wheel of the car is powered by individual motors attached to them and can...

... high center of gravity in
relation to the width of the wheel track can make the vehicle more
likely to roll if it gets sideways. Moving the CG rearward tends to
reduce stability in two ways; It increases the tendency to oversteer.

... buying them, just make sure you don't buy ST
(trailer) tires. ST tires would probably work if you can't find anything
else, but they are built to go passively carry weight, and are not built for
sideways stresses that are present on the front axle of a car.
The "surface patch" (footprint) can be measured by lifting and printing a mounted wet tire on a piece of cardboard while parked.
Most skinny tires will have an oval or round footprint.
Some wide tires will have a round, oval, (or even a sideways-figure-eight footprint).
