I've noticed that many smart people prefer to say and write "-z" instead of "-s", "-es" in plurals.
For example, my friend Sasha (Sashok) from San Jose, one of the smartest people I've ever known bought a huge truck with huge tires and license plate for that track "BIG TIREZ"
IS it a general trend in American English to use "-z" in plural or only smart people do it?
