Agree with you there!

If the place is a shop=tyres, isn't that really all that OSM needs to say?

After that, isn't it up to "you" to make a simple phone call, or look at
their linked website, to check if they sell motorbike or bicycle tyres?

& where do we stop with extreme details?

As Martin put it

"or sells=tyres:white:motorcycle..."


Then do we start on tyre sizes?

tyres:car:brand_a:195_65r15 for literally the 1000s (10s of 1000s?) of
variants that any tyre shop will carry?

Where does it end?
