Re: [CE-L] Usage: Changing a tire or changing a wheel
I've always changed a tire if it went flat. The only time I ever changed
wheels was when I wanted to mount some sporty-looking ones to replace the
plain-jane ones that came from the factory.

Author is English, but is writing for an American readership, although he
does not take such details into consideration.
While contemplating the word "tyre," it occurred to me that drivers do not
change a tire, they change a wheel.
The style of the book is fairly chatty. Am I being too pedantic?
