Some cheap wheels.

So we know who will not be using them on their cars. We first thought his would be a good title for country music song. A tandem semi trailer rig?

Twenty three wheels and a dozen roses....... one more mile to the county line.....

The 6th set?

My guess is he/she/it was too ignorant to know he needed one more wheel to have 6 complete sets. And why were there 7 vehicles? Is it just me or the numbers just not adding up here?
