Done some of that but its bad enough having a stack of around 20 all in one spot but spreading them out over the garden wouldn't look nice. The missus has taken a couple for potato planters but I doubt she wants any more as its back breaking work shovelling all the soil.

Make friends with a farmer. They always need old tyres to keep haps weighed down for the silage and umpteen other things. Farmers will take absolutely anything provided they don't have to pay for it and/or it might be useful to them 'one day'.

Thought of that, but few farmers around these parts have sileage heaps and none locally (probably the pikeys from the local sites would nick the tyres)

i was only joking about the planters.
reminds me of that grand designs build that matey did with tyres, that looked like a fuck load of work!

if making friends with a farmer is too much like hard work just go for a drive in the country and find a silage heap to dump them on.

You've given me an idea! We have a very large Pikey site nearby that the **** on the corner has planted some fuck off cast iron bollards on the verge that she has claimed. I could do the community thing and lob the tyres over each bollard to make them more car friendly????

I've always found two places that I get mine from, just depends what you want, never had a problem with either of them, and you can actually talk to someone who seems to know what they are talking about, not a call centre bod!

http://www.jungletyres.co.uk/ or http://www.tyremen.co.uk/

Cheers

My approach to buying tyres is usually by another set of wheels with good tyres & sell the old wheels on lol.

Or get tyres swapped over at my local tyre place as they only charge me 5 per wheel & no disposal if I go in and pay cash at lunch times.

For new tyres, blackcircles with fitting at a local garage, bought 2 Khumo's for my CRV 147 fitted. My local tyre place 165 (and they are always competitive!)
