Polyamorous groups of three are generally referred to as triad. It's a HUGE deal that you were the first person they wanted to tell when they decided to go public as a triad- they trust you more than they trust family or any of their other friends! That's some serious trust and friendship there. Also, considering that cars exist, you obviously can't be the first fourth wheel. Not many cars that only have three of them. Hell, if you are so inclined, you could consider asking them if they would consider a fourth member. It's also possible that they have an open relationship, and that everyone can have romantic/sexual partners outside of the triad with approval from the other two. Talk to them, ask questions, try to be open minded and polite- if they get mad at you for asking if they would ever consider a fourth member, or if their relationship is an open one, that's overkill on their part. That said, I wish more triads called their relationship a "party"- you know, "one's company, two's a crowd, and three's a party."

'm assuming you mean fingering her belly button. Only after flicking her nipples.

I know you may have been surprised, or confused, and that is understandable. But they really were probably making a very respextful show of honor and trust in you to come out to you. I would just talk to your friends, and be supportive. If you ask qurstions kindly and respectfully, your questions may help them know what sort of things to expect from others. That may help them with future conversations. Anyway, how nice for your friends, and you!

Technically- even though there are terms like triad and quartet that most of the polyamorous communities agree on as being "more correct"- you can call a polyamorous group anything. As long as the group doesn't object, and you aren't doing it to make fun of or insult them, that is. Apparently "throuple" has become more accepted and used since I was researching polyamory, as an example. Some people also call their polyamorous group a "pack" so that they don't have to find a new term if they gain or lose partners.

They'd be a Tetris!

I think it's time to retire "[x#] wheel" as the term given that four wheels is normal for a car and many types of vehicles have larger numbers then that. Might I suggest "spare wheel" instead?
