Hi LDRAW friends,

when looking at our wheels+tyres collection...:

...you will notice that 6 out of the 320 files are wrongly oriented (marked in pink).

As that number is very small, I think it would be acceptable to create corrected variants of these 6
(as NEW part files, of course, to not break existing models)
and make the wrongly oriented ones a MOVED-TO to the correct ones.

The new part number would simply be adding a "...b" suffix to the existing one.

I would like to volunteer to do this, but first I would like to request an OK for this from the other
experienced parts authors / the SteerCo

Opinions? It is just 6 files and would make our library consistent.

I would be very happy looking at the wheels above and see them all oriented the same way.

How about all the shortcuts now using the moved part?
Don't they also need to be updated and not use the Move to-part?

Of course, this can be done in a later step.
This always occurs when adding a MOVED-TO.
I can do that if wanted.
I'll probably wait with that until the 6 wheels + their MOVED TOs have accumulated enough CERT votes.

The MOVED-TO files of course contain the proper matrix
to map the new ...b files to the old (wrong) orientation.
