I usually just burn them. Or toss them on the side of the road.

Sounds like you could toss a couple in this guy's yard and he might not even notice.

Sometimes I toss them in the backyard of Hacksaws old house too.
The guy that lives there never notices.

Skooterbuilt's yard. He won't see them through the 3ft of grass or the half dozen partially dismantled vehicles.

Our shop charges 3 for car tires a 22.5 would be 8. You could probably go toss them on state land somewhere

cut the sidewalls out of them, then throw them in the dumpster.

i've cut hundreds of sidewalls out and thrown them in the trash.

landfills won't take them with sidewalls because they don't fill with dirt all the way and will work their way to the top of the trash. cut the sidewalls out and they can be thrown in the dumpster.

$1.50 a tire up here, and about once a year the county has a collection and you can dump them for free.
