    Uses for old tractor tires

    Bought a couple 16.9 x 28 tires for my 5310. The seller asked me if I wanted to keep the old one. Had not thought of it and didn't know what to tell him, so finally decided to have him haul them off, at $25 a tire cost. So, what do you do with old tires?

    Pay to get rid of them

    Neighbor wanted some and I put her in touch with an area Farmer. She wanted them for her goats to play on. She wanted two, the Farmer had three and told her "all or none" Two she stacked. The third she buried about 1/3 in the ground standing up. They give her goats something to climb.

    Not sure they are big enough but I have seen people cut tires half to use them as snow pushers or for mucking out barns. Just chain or strap them to the FEL.

    This is a really big tire but gives you an idea of what I am talking about.

    You could fill them up with topsoil and make elevated garden beds out of them.

    I gave 2 to a lady that was starting some fitness program. If you have the space, I understand they don't burn black at night.

    You might be a redneck if you have a use for an old tractor tire.

    I don't care how much you dress it up, it screams "I'm too cheap to pay the $25 disposal fee."

    I've seen old tractor tires made into "yard dragons"...

    Oh, I dont know, Ive seen those guys too with a pile of tires behind the barn, but considering how much my little boy loves tractors, especially the green ones, an old tractor tire for a sand box would make him VERY happy.
    And I generally dont give two hoots what others think, so theres that too, lol!
