The worst is car guys calling wheels rims as if you can get “alloy” rims only and not the entire wheel.

You can buy "rims" only for a car, if you have 3 piece wheels.

Or people who say “ I need new wheels.” When they mean tires.

Technically, 3-piece wheel components are the center, inner barrel, and outer barrel (outer lip).

Funny we have the same phenomenon in France.
For some guys, a wheel is a rim, while the actual rim becomes a circle or a hoop.

The "I love lamp" votes get added to the "Rim" votes, because thats what i hear when someone calls (spoiler alert) a wheel , a rim.

You can buy new rims without buying the whole wheel assembly. Not sure if that's what you're getting at here since you posted a picture of the whole wheel assembly...

I havent looked hard, but in the process of buying wheels for my truck i have never seen anywhere where you can buy only rims. Its always the entire wheel regardless of how many individual pieces.

I think that's what he was saying. Cars only have wheels. I tried to rind if the spoked wheels are sold separately but looks like they're all built as one also.

Exactly what im getting at.
Eg. People call asking for a new 19" rim in black, and it turns out they are actually chasing a wheel.
