How many wheels are there on a garbage truck? I’m sure it’s probably more than the typical four, but how many more do they have?

Most garbage trucks in the United States either have 10 or 12 tires in total. However, the number of tires may vary depending on the style of truck. There are four types of garbage trucks:
  1. Front loaders, which pick up trash cans and dumpsters at the front of the truck
  2. Rear loaders, which pick up trash receptacles at the rear of the truck
  3. Side loaders, which pick up trash receptacles at the sideof the truck
  4. Roll off trucks, which have a detachable rear compartment that can roll off of the bed of the truck
Regardless of the number of tires, however, garbage trucks require regular tire maintenance, since they spend most of the day on the road with heavy loads of trash in the back.
