1. A method of braking left and right landing gear wheels on respective left and right sides of an aircraft, the method comprising: receiving a desired left braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (L) for the left wheel; receiving a desired right braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (R) for the right wheel; braking the left wheel with a reduced left braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (L′) which is less than the desired left braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (L); and braking the right wheel with a reduced right braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (R′) which is less than the desired respective right braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (R), wherein L′−R′=L−R.
