            A wheel is a complete assembly, thus why tracked vehicles refer to them as wheels.

      You're wrong though you autistic homosexual. The rim is the outside part of the wheel, that has the bead and the valve. The tire attaches directly to the rim. The entire metal part is the wheel, which consists of the hub, the spokes, and the rim.

          The governing body in question is concerned with the standardization of tires and rims because the rim is the part of the wheel that the tire locks to, and thus needs to be interoperable with a tire. They do not refer to the entire wheel as a rim, because it isn't. You hallucinated that fact because you have a defective brain. Nothing on those websites implies that anyone at those organizations thinks a wheel is called a rim.

            It says there a wheel consists of two parts, the wheel centre and the rim which the tyre mounts to. They're the European tyre and rim technical organisation. See if you can figure out why all their documentation would be refering to rims given that. Or you can cope some more and try to explain why you think a wheel is a component of a rim.

            Looks to me like they're giving context to which part of the wheel they're defining the rim to be. Maybe you should trying reading it again, having a little think about what it says and working on your comprehension skills.

            Please explain how you think a wheel can be a component of a rim but a rim is also a part of a wheel. You can draw a little diagram if you think that would help.

        Well I'm not talking about you then am I? Even though a $600 set of baby TEs hardly counts as a flex.
        RPF1 hate is a generational thing. For those who were into the car hobby when the latest design hit the market, we had to sit through years of everyone putting them on their car, making everything look the same. The same thing happened with FN01Rc before then, and with Work CR-kais after. For the younger guys, all of these are "cool old wheels" and don't carry the same stigma.

          I was quoting the weights of my TE's as an example of 'lauded' wheels, which aren't much lighter than RPF1's. Got the 15x6.5 because they were lightand high quality. Admit I got the 15x8 MTE37SL's thinking about the looks though. Flexing aside, RPF1's are a great wheel, as are TE37's.
