Registration question: How many wheels does a car normally have?

 

Correct answer: 5 (4 + spare = 5 [or it did when I went to school!])

 

But - OH NO!!! - it would seem that no-one carries a 'spare' these days, and the answer is 4!

Most cars actually come with tyre sealant rather than a spare these days!  ;)

 

The question is there for anti spam purposes and it does a good job. If it wasn't for the question, we would be fighting a constant battle with spammers posting about pharmaceuticals. Believe me it happens!

well you might have to change that setting as from what ive read manufactures are now thinking of going back to having a spare.customers have been complaining about the gunk,that doesnt work when the tyre has been shredded.

I do hope that they do, or at least, they make it optional!
