Now you are counting those in the wrong order. You are supposed to count the fifth wheel fifth, so you have to count the two front wheels plus the fly wheel and the steering wheel for the first four. Next comes the fifth wheel as fifth, then continue with the rest.

If you don't count the fifth wheel in fifth place you are going to get a whole Abbott and Costello thing going on. :wink:
And, you forgot the "BIG WHEEL" behind the wheel... Or was that a "LOOSE NUT"???? :lol: :lol: :lol:

If I have my TV on in the sleeper, and Wheel of Fortune is on the set, do I get to count that as an additional wheel?

Yes, but only when it is on.

Steering wheel counts as one too.
