    Default Where to dispose of tractor tires and rims?

    Weird question, right? Had a bunch of these left on my property, no idea how to get rid of them without seperating them. Any suggestions?

    Use a Skill Saw (in appropriate manner, not like "I can saw to potato") to cut the tires so they can be removed.
    Tires to tire shop*. Wheels to scrap.
    Profit?

    Perhaps this is an "after hours" activity, but it's not like their bins have armed security guards. Plus, the recycling fee has already been paid on them, so eff off - these bins aren't just for new customers!

    Oh... I didn't think it would be much worse. I've only cut the sidewall of car tires and figured these would be bigger and squishier...

    Most car tires now use kevlar and nylon belts. Tractor and tractor trailer tires have wicked steel belts in them which will f*&k up many a cutting blade or disc.

    Luckily, I found a solution!

    These guys are in north Edmonton and take things like tractor tires, INCLUDING if they are mounted. My lucky f'ing day. Sounds like they basically take any tires/rims (presumably steel) as long as they aren't too massive (these are about 40-48 inch tractor tires).
