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 :flag_of_truce:

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.:unknown:

When I was a kid, our sandbox was a tractor tire.

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.:lol:

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!

My FIL made a couple like this, but he used regular pickup tires.

I'm not sure what it'd take to roll a tractor tire inside out. :unknown:

They had a machine that would do it.
Of course, there are many "home remedy" solutions to do it as well.
Cut out one sidewall and then flip.

With the popularity of radials, the flipping decreased, as they didn't hold shape as well, and the cords posed a danger.

We usually sell ours to the local road course for use in the impact barriers (I race, so I can just haul em when I go to the track) or we use bigger ones to put round bales on for the cows to keep em off the ground. Haven't had to pay to have a tire hauled off in all my life.
