Why are wheels and tyres in mm but screws are in LDU? ++[[User:Lar|Lar]]: [[User_talk:Lar|t]]/[[Special:Contributions/Lar|c]] 17:47, 11 July 2011 (EDT)
:I don't know. Are they? Have to investigate. --[[User:Mikeheide|Mikeheide]] 00:46, 17 July 2011 (PDT)
:: They seem to be... see [[Nomenclature for screws]]. ++[[User:Lar|Lar]]: [[User_talk:Lar|t]]/[[Special:Contributions/Lar|c]] 12:10, 17 July 2011 (PDT)
::: I have take that from a part on the PT. I think Chris has written that. But I see no reason to change as measuring in mm/inch is quite more difficult. With this approach you can much easier find a screw that already exists and fit your needs. IMHO.--[[User:Mikeheide|Mikeheide]] 00:07, 23 July 2011 (PDT)
:::: So maybe it's wheels and tyres that are the odd man out then. Changing them is more extensive I suppose. Also many LEGO tyres have the size imprinted/molded in the rubber. ++[[User:Lar|Lar]]: [[User_talk:Lar|t]]/[[Special:Contributions/Lar|c]] 05:57, 23 July 2011 (PDT)
::::: We have a mix of units across the library (studs/brick height units/LDu/actual) and it doesn't make sense to use a single unit for everything. I deliberated long and hard on the tyres, to help solve the problems of small/medium/large that existed. In the discussion at http://news.lugnet.com/cad/?n=13760 I decided to go with something that most closely matches the commercial nomenclature, which is in some cases used by LEGO.
