My Career in equipment sales had me involved in the rental industry and U Haul was one of my clients. For years they tried to have equipment that was sturdy and dependable but they were also concerned with customers renting something and swapping parts from the equipment for their own use. They wanted to discourage tire rotation. That is a customer rotating his worn tires for the newer ones on their rental unit. They did this on moving trucks also.

When I was in Detroit, GM had their name on everything including the paper staplers.

I once read where a company had lite bulbs with the threads going the other way so employees could not use them at home.

I've seen left hand thread light bulbs, might even have one. They can be bought on Amazon and from numerous other suppliers. Sometimes they are used in special voltage situations, sometimes to prevent theft.

Apparently the rims aren't always available, but Tom Griebe posted this link on the 21st [U-Haul Facebook site], saying they were again, currently.......

I'm old enough to remember when Detroit Edison gave out free light bulbs.

Neither Tractor Supply or Northern Tool list a rim with a 4 3/4 bolt circle.
