Actually, when the wheel and axle parts are combined, they become a system known as a compound wheel. This type of system is found on most vehicles, and it may also be present on inventions and products that have wheels (shopping carts, remote control cars, etc.). Most people who are mechanics of cars, trucks, or motorcycles will understand how the compound wheel and axle work together to help steer a car and keep it stable.

  • Learning about car systems

On the Internet, in libraries, and in bookstores, there is a ton of information about car systems and how they work; how much a person can learn on their own is really only dependent on their personal energy and motivation. Of course, schools also teach aspiring mechanics how to fix cars and comprehend all of a vehicle's basic systems. Usually, technical colleges or vocational schools will feature comprehensive course loads that lead to apprenticeships or certification as car mechanics. Sometimes, specialization as diesel mechanics, motorcycle mechanics, or truck mechanics is sought out. Each type of vehicle may feature variations of compound wheels and axles.

  • Instructional videos

If you want to see compound wheels in action, or watch mechanics repair or replace wheels and axles, look for videos that show detailed, step-by-step instructions. For example, TV shows, such as the popular hit program, Monster Garage, show crazy car repairs that still feature down-to-earth tips on understanding cars, trucks, and how everything can be replaced, repaired, or modified.

If you're considering home car repairs, but you don't really understand compound wheels, axles, and other car parts and systems, you may risk your personal safety by attempting to fix your car by yourself. Instead, consider taking your car to a certified mechanic, or ask a mechanically-inclined friend to step in and help you out.
