When did it change?

  1. I have seen ads that show rims as wheels, tires as wheels and packages as wheels. Correct me if I am wrong; Rims are rims, Tires are tires, and a tire on a rim is a wheel. Anyone agree with me??:confused:

    actually a rim and a center as an assembly is a wheel. a tire on a wheel is a wheel tire combo
  3. .........I'm not sure I understand where you're going with this, but a tire on a rim is just that, a tire on a rim, not a wheel.:)

    A rim in actual definition is the hoop around the wheel center or spider.
    The rim and spider combo is a wheel.

    When they invented the wheel I don't think they'd invented tyres yet.

    the young guys are destroying our language, calling it a drop axle when it is a dropped axle, a draw when its a drawer and thinking an International truck is a traditional hot rod
