I thougt "tires" and "wheels" are the same, but it seems "tires" are mounted on "wheels", which are just a frame for "tires". What do you think?
mo39)...On a personal level, I suppose he’s right. You shouldn’t stew all day long if a clerk is rude to
you. However, if it’s your store and that clerk is being rude to one of your customers, it is a very big deal. In business,you’ve got to sweat the small stuff. When you go to a tire store, you expect the tires to be mounted on your wheels and balanced properly. What you don’t expect are the little things. And what you remember is not how well the tires were balanced but whether the clerk was kind or rude to you.
If you buy a tyre (note BrE spelling) you will only get the rubber part which fits onto the wheel.
There are many carts and wagons that have wheels but not tires.
If you have a bike, you inflate your tire, not your wheel.
