What’s the best use for old tires?
Stack them up, fill them with dirt and they make great planters. Grow tomatoes this way every year.
Funny, just today I was thinking about making a tire swing for my nephew
Throw it in your backyard to test if it really only take 50-100 years to decompose
Use them for the Chickens to roost on or shit or the pig to push around when he gets bored
Turning into a garden bed
My dad would fill them with cement and make tetherball courts out if them.
Unfortunately, used tires are not used to make new tires.
Use to build a home like an Earthship
It looks like a toucan crossed with a spider! Those tail feathers are creepy looking on the ground !
The process of tire recycling into new tires is “making traction”. Pun intended.
Fill with dirt, stack them up to make a shooting backstop.
For the love of anything holy, DO NOT roll down a hill inside a tire. Easiest way to break your back on a bump, especially if it starts bouncing uncontrollably, and end with a ruined life of pain & expenses.
But to each their own I guess.
Experience? I sure hope not!!!
Tires make great planters for an early season ‘jump start’.
When I used to grow a lot of veggies, I used tires as a cold frame. They absorb a lot of heat during the day. I put soil in then covered with clear plastic. I could put out tomatoes and Mellon’s about 3 weeks early.
Landscape fabric under will keep weeds down if that’s an issue.
Playground “gravel”. I don’t think you can make new tyres out of them, they’ve been vulcanized and are full of nylon or Kevlar tyre cord. See what I did there? I used the UK spelling of “tires”. Cheerios!
