This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


It shouldn't be make from/of, it should be made from/of. Made is the past form of make, and since the item you are asking about already exists, you want to ask what it's made from. For this context, there is little or no difference between made from and made of (which is a shortened form of made out of).


Person 1: "What are car tires made out of?"
Person 2: "They are made of rubber."
