Are there more wheels or doors in the world? This is exactly what the “Wheels vs. Doors” TikTok debate is trying to figure out. As stupid as the question may sound when you first hear it, it draws you in… As one of the biggest debates on social media, probably since the blue and gold dress, this question has got people heated up!
It all started when the Twitter user Ryan Nixon tweeted “My mates and I are having the STUPIDEST debate… And I am here for it.”.
My mates and I are having the STUPIDEST debate…
And I am here for it.
Do you think there are more doors or wheels in the world?

The tweet quickly went viral. While the original poll was almost tied with wheels getting 53,6% of the votes, the debate jumped platforms, creating the Wheels vs. Doors TikTok debate. Almost every TikTok user had an answer which they defended to death. It didn’t matter whether they were casual users or digital authorities like John Green.
Now let’s check out some of the best arguments!

Are There More Wheels or Doors on The World?
What TikTok Has To Say:
Wheels vs. Doors: John Green – Team Wheels
@literallyjohngreenDoors are great. Wheels are great. But they are not equal in quantity.♬ original sound – John Green
If you’re not already aware, John Green -yeah, the author of The Fault in Our Stars- is a pretty big deal on TikTok as well. And he is very determined to convert you to team wheels.
GoPro – Team Doors
@gopro Team wheels has some explaining to do… #gopro #wheels #doors #wheelsvsdoors #doorsvswheels #debate ♬ original sound – GoPro
The brands are in on the Wheels vs. Doors TikTok debate as well! One thing you may not have noticed if you’re Team Wheels, is that each GoPro has a door.
Hank Green – Team Wheels

Hank Green, the vlogger and “science communicator”, makes a pretty good point with Legos. Did you know the biggest manufacturer of wheels in the world was Lego?
How About Skyscrapers? – Team Doors
@kimyesupremacy now imagine thousands and thousands of sky scrapers worldwide… #teamdoors ♬ original sound – Icy Trey
Ever thought about how many doors there were in just one tall skyscraper? Well, here’s the opportunity!
Conveyor Belts and Storages – Team Wheels?
@waluigismokesdoinks Team wheels all the way there’s literally hundreds of thousands of them in just this building #wheelsordoors #teamwheels ♬ original sound – Michelangelo
A room full of wheels and only one door? It’s a nightmare for team doors!
And what about this conveyor belt with a thousand wheels?
@giotrax6 and there’s wheels on the bottom that make it roll too😭 #fyp #wheels ♬ original sound – Icy Trey
The Locker Situation – Team Doors
@maciisabella i counted 471 doors just on the left side of walmart today #teamdoors ♬ original sound – Icy Trey
A strong argument to Team Window’s conveyor belts, is all the lockers around the world. All of those have doors, right?
Wheel Pasta – Team Wheels
@ellavblue If you’re team doors you’re wrong #doorsvswheels #wheelsvsdoors #wheels #doors ♬ original sound – Icy Trey
Yet another successful argument from Team Wheels, with the potential to convert a lot of people. How many billions of wheel pasta are there on the shelves?
Wheels vs. Doors: What is the answer to are there more wheels or doors in the world?
After hours and hours on TikTok, I regret to inform you that there’s no definitive answer to the Wheels vs. Doors debate. I imagine the calculation is no easy feat, and no expert has come up with solid data. Personally, I’m Team Wheels. Is this because there, objectively, are stronger arguments to support wheels; or is it simply because TikTok exposed me to more Team Wheels content? I don’t mind TikTok playing mind games on me when it’s all fun and games, but how effective is the algorithm when it comes to propaganda?
Does the answer to the Wheels vs. Doors TikTok debate even matter at this point? The debate is extremely divisive, and the chaos it creates is joyful on its own. I hosted an office poll on this, and it completely locked up our workflow, with people dropping their tasks at hand only to join in on the debate. Oddly, the office poll also resulted in Team Wheels winning with 53,3%, very close to the original Twitter poll’s 53,6.
