I'm posting this question for Charlie Schwarz (firstname.lastname@example.org) who doesn't have access to usenet: When an airplane lands, are the wheels rotating? It seems they are not since there is always a puff a smoke when the wheels touch the runway. Doesn't this burn up a lot of rubber? Wouldn't it save a lot of tire tread if the wheels could be spun up to match the speed of the plane?
