Default Disposal of tires?

Havent really looked into it much.
I may be picking up around 100 tires on rims, pulling the rims off to scrap and then im left with all the tires.

Anyone know where i can dispose of the tires?

Thanks.

it is not worth the time or money to do it. You will most likely loose money on this deal. Tires are hard to get rid of around me.

Agreed. You would not get your money back , most places that will dispose of tires want between $2-4 per tire and I don't think you'd get it back in scrap.

I know i can dispose some of them for free at a local school for an auto program for the intro students to practice using the tire machine. Not quite sure about 100 though, thats a big pile of rubber.

get a hold of the Two trackers 4 wheel drive club and find out who takes the tires from the trail clean up. Who ever it is makes some pretty neat shit out of them.

get rid of some and keep a few, they make a great fire warmer for bon fires, especially if your having a winter bon fire, they really throw off the heat, you'll go through a ton of them before you know it

Are you actually advocating the burning of tires ? Wow.

Maybe you could find a race track or even an RC track that is using them for walls and get them to take a few off your hands ?

Just please don't burn them.
