Driving Home for Thanksgiving

On my drive home Friday morning after our physics exam on rotational motion, I was thinking about the rotational motion and angular kinematics of the tires of my car throughout my trip home. So when I got home, I found the distance of my travel (206 miles), the time of my trip (3 hours and 40 minutes), assumed that I traveled a constant velocity of 60 mph, and carried out the following calculations to find out how the angular velocity of my rotating tires and how many revolutions my tires made on my trip home.
