Need help problem solving--

A 500 space parking lot is packed with motorcycles and passenger cars, with only one vehicle in each space. How many motorcycles & cars r there if the total number of tires on the parked vehicles is 1650?

I think I have to do this in some kind of equation format, I am so confused.

    175 motorcycles, 325 cars
    motorcycles represented as x and cars, y

    2x+4y=1650
    2(500-y)+4y=1650
    1000-2y+4y=1650
    2y=650
    y=325

    2x+1300=1650
    2x=350
    x=175
