Hello and good morning.

Having just spent the last hour clearing out a spare room I now have been reunited with lord knows how many old tyres (lucky me!).

So, does anyone have any good ideas what to do with old tyres? Can they be recycled? Turned into pieces of art? Make a giant Frisbee etc etc.


Any advice or suggestions on what to do with them would be gratefully received.


Safe trails

Last meet I went to I gave loads away. Not old crap by any means - Conti XC's, Hutchinson Toros, Geax Barro Mud, Conti Traction Pros. Some of them even got used at Mountain Mayhem last weekend.

Give them away and enjoy the good karma.

NO!!!!!
Recycle.
Us less well off would love to try some decent warn tyres.
I am a regular on Basschat, a UK bass forum and many on there pass on used strings. I know some artists who use a set of strings for one gig and replace. Nothing wrong with them, and for my level of skill, fantastic to try.
