Only gone partially metric with the tyre width, but still keeping the diameter imperial ??. Give it another 30 years and maybe we will be fully metricated.

Be more honest wouldn't it. Folks still go on about 0-60. It's been 0-62 for goodness knows how long...

At least we still drive on the correct side of the road... ;) :D

As title. Never once gave this a thought, but now I have, it seems a bit eccentric.
The first and only Renault I owned had metric wheels. When it was time for new tires, there was exactly one expensive replacement available.

BMW briefly used metric wheels. Nearly all of the BMWs have had the wheels swapped out and most of the Renaults are off the road.

Metric tyres are still available from specialist dealers.


For example:
