I didn’t feel like paying Walmart $1.50 per tire to haul them off so I came home with 4 used 16” tires. One is already a tire swing.  Got three left. Any good uses for them?  Otherwise I got a pond that the spillway is washing out, I’ll just throw them in there to stop the erosion.

My brother in law uses them in his garden for potatoes.  He stacks them 3 or 4 high, fills them with dirt, and plants potatoes.

 At the end of the summer he dumps the stack over and just picks the potatoes out of the mess.

not much digging or labor involved.

besides that, you got me!

Got livestock?  Make feed troughs, keep salt licks off the ground.
Got kids? A swing----wouldn't know what to do with the other three though.

I like to leave them sitting around the yard for mosquito breeding pools. Save the mozzies!

I like the pic above. By putting the mosquito pools on the roof, the owner can maximize both yard space and mosquito exposure!  We can make the world safe for yellow fever, malaria and dengue again!

But really: $1.50 each to get rid of them? That's dirt cheap.

Make Ho Chi sandals for the whole family and friends. Great with summer coming. I still got a pair from the Nam. Guess I haven't walked 50,000 miles yet as the tread is still good

Check on youtube for videos of people cutting out the side walls with a hook blade utility knife. When the side walls, the tread, and the bead ring have been separated, they have some possible uses, and won't hold water for mosquito breeding .

They should make soles for boots out of used tires. Logger boots for example.

If you cut firewood you could use them to hold the tarps on your wood piles.  You could also use one to hold your block of wood while you split it.

I would have paid Walmart the $6 to dispose of them properly.  Much better to have them recycled or shredded for playground mulch.

good for rubber bumpers. you can cut little pieces out and use them to replace the felt and cheap ones  on drawers and doors and other things where you want them quiet and not metal on metal or wood on wood. i did that on my car that i had with the flip up doors for the headlights and worked perfectly. you just glue them in place where you want them. if you cut them in circles they would make great lantern pump up pads for out in the field so no more rim rash.

I wonder if Walmart/tire stores charge you to “dispose “ of them and then turn around and sell them to a recycling place?

Jason,

It costs money to recycle.  I feel rather certain that old tires are not sold to recycling centers.  

On a side note, I personally think it's only a matter of time before the illusion of recycling just about anything stops.  China no longer wants our recycling materials due to the quantity of non-recyclable packaging as well as toxic waste that people are sending to recycling.  There have been several articles on this over the past year.  Also, folks that put their cans and bottles into plastic bags and drop into recycling are causing problems for the recyclers because those bags gum up the shredding machines.

If you have room to keep them out of the rain and store them there are endless uses for an old tire.

I still like the idea of Ho Chi sandals I priced them on the bay and they seem to start at $40. I think that with a band saw you could get three to four pair out of a tire and make some money even at $25 a pair.

Take the tires by a place that sells used tires and let them sell them to somebody. At a minimum they can spend the next decade as tires on a boat trailer that never goes anywhere..
