The **net** velocity of any point on the wheel is the vector sum of the
constant translational velocity, and the rotational velocity.

Because the magnitudes of these two velocities are equal on the circumference, the net velocity for key points on the wheel are:

top of the wheel: v + v = 2v

center of the wheel: v + 0 = v

bottom of the wheel: v - v = 0

The bottom of the wheel is instantaneously at
rest! There is no slipping where the rubber meets the road.
