flight crews numbered the wheels according to how many crewmembers there were on board. After landing and parking at the gate, the number that was at 6 o'clock won the pot.

Airliner tires do not generally have creep marks because they don't have inner tubes.

Isn't creep also a form of Metal fatigue and/or corrosion?
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 17):|
Defination of Creep :- The flow or plastic deformation of metals held for long periods of time at stresses lower than the normal yield strength. The effect is particularly important if the temperature of stressing is above the recrystallization temperature of the metal.
