Here's a science problem. I'll explain the answer in the evening in the comments.
So you're driving down the interstate, let's say 65 mph. How fast is the top of the tire moving?
It might help to think about how fast the bottom of the tire, the part touching the road, is moving.
11:15 AM: For clarification, I'm asking about the velocity of a point on the tire at the instant when that point is at the top of the tire, i.e. furthest from the ground. Also 65mph is referenced to the ground, so this velocity should also be referenced the same. Let's say 26" for the tire diameter, although there's enough info in the original statement.
