Metric tire section size designations on inch rims was an industry initiative not a government mandate. Started in the mid 70's with passenger car tires and has expanded from there.

A small number of European manufacturers (e.g. BMW, Ferrari) experimented briefly with metric rim diameters but that never caught on. Tires for those old wheels are exceedingly hard to come by.
