No magic, the preset has curated values for the subtags (which is
naturally possible in iD too) most of them have historically been
gleaned from the wiki or from actual use.  The upside and the downside
of this is that they are curated, so there is always a certain lag
between a value being used in the wild and it turning up in the preset.

Sorry, but the `service=tyres` has to go.  A few thousand uses is not “established tagging practice”.  And I doubt that that usage was ever discussed here or proposed either.  If it was, I missed the proposal where someone said “lets put tyres in a tag already used 3 million times for something else”.  My “no” vote on such a thing would not have mattered anyway.
