Unit of Measure differences ?

Why are wheels and tyres in mm but screws are in LDU? ++Lar: t/c 17:47, 11 July 2011 (EDT)

I don't know. Are they? Have to investigate. --Mikeheide 00:46, 17 July 2011 (PDT)
They seem to be... see Nomenclature for screws. ++Lar: t/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.--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. ++Lar: t/c 05:57, 23 July 2011 (PDT)
