No. You are wrong, and nothing you can say is going to change that. The wheel is the metal ring the car rides on. A tire is a rubber ring that protects the wheel and softens the ride.

GoogleCat

A tire is a rubber ring that protects the wheel and softens the ride.
Those are the secondary objectives of a tyre, or a side-effect of sorts. Tyres are there to provide grip for the rim. The steel or aluminium rim doesn't recieve good friction on it's own.

Funfact: the colour of tyres used to be white until synthetic rubber became popular.

I'm trying to figure this out too. Only explanation I can come up with is that by "30k" he means the range of 30k, so 30k - 39k. Then if you are a retard and pretend that your 5k investment didn't exist, you "only paid" 22k for it... still not double. better explanation is "boomer"

cars like this stay there for decades as they think it's worth exponentially more over time which also exponentially deceases the chance anyone is going to buy it.

actually wagon wheels (presumably the wooden old fashioned kind) had an actual "rim" as a serviceable part, it served the same purpose as a tire but instead of rubber it was a metal band that went around the circumference to act as a wear surface and protect the wooden wheel. It's a whole different thing than car wheels with tires and kind of shit to use as an analogy.

"I know what I got"

On the opposite end.

I absolutely can't fucking stand when I'm trying to sell it trade a car and I'll specifically state NO BIKES but yet I'll get 15+ replies of various motorcycles and ATVs.

Why does covering a license plate = dropped?
It's like you want your car to be stolen
With your logic, everyone should be covering their license plates when they get home. Or when they park at the mall. If they don't cover up, their car will be stolen.

not interested in selling, just testing the waters
They are thinking of reselling someone else's car.

This kind of listing often happens if someone gets an offer from a friend or neighbor that says "Wanna buy my car for $500?" and then they put the listing to see how much interest there is in buying.

VERY RARE "BLUE" COLOR HARD TO FIND
In other words, faded.
Or it is a maaco blue color which would obviously be rare compared to the OEM blue color. There's a shit ton of liars out there. And even robbers.

I tried buying once before from CL after driving 1.5 hours. Got there and the deal priced was increased by another $250. I guess they thought they could force me since I had to drive all that distance. I walked away.

After that, I just bought new cars only. No regrets.

Because I have no interest in selling the car; but, if I did, I'd put the interior back in and clean it up so it looks its best. The car has 8k miles and is worth about $25k in its current condition.

"very nice car!" in title

why do people feel the need to put that shit there?

TurtleCat
TurtleCat

Because it's very nice. You want a very nice car don't you? It's not just regular nice either, it's very much so.

Also:
car is full of fucking garbage from 10+ years ago
literally packed with old McDonalds bags and paper towels
I can't think of a bigger sign that says you're an idiot and don't perform regular car maintenance. The very basis of selling anything is to make it appealing as reasonably possible and if you can't even kick all the fast food wrappers out of your car and maybe use the vacuum then you probably don't even know how many cylinders it has and have almost certainly been in at least one accident, probably while you were too focused on all that fast food.

Meet a dude to potentially buy his car.
Goes to pop the hood, first he can't the hood release latch, and then he doesn't know where to put the prop bar to keep the hood up.

That really was the start of finding more and more things wrong with the car that didn't add up to what he was telling us.

I am registered to vote, but that's okay if you want to place me in your mind as less of a man than you. You say whatever you need to feel big and strong. It's what Trump supporters do best.

Every time I've gone to check out a car sold by a mexican, it's been parked on a lawn for several months, easy. Tires sunk into grass, water spots from sprinklers/hose running on car when they water their lawn, and the inside looks like it was used to haul piles of trash from one landfill to another.
