It might be an "across the pond" thing, but to me it's spare wheel which comprises a tyre on a rim.
You'd change a wheel at the side of the road. Need to take it to a tyre dealer to get the tyre changed.

I would change the tire, unless of course the wheel had been damaged.
Then I would change that also.


I did say "drivers", not "mechanics."

I used to have a spare wheel in the car, not just the tire.
