    what tool would work well to cut up the tread parts of apssenger car tires ? they arent very thick, the steel wires would be the hardest parts, the beads are cut off all the tires

    what would cut these tires up into about quarters ?

    thanks

    Yup. sawzall's work the best. Only part that can be difficult is where the BIG strand of wires is on the bead.

    Why don't you take them to a tire shop and maybe get $5 out of them?

    ??? You don't have used tire stores that buy used tires and re-sell them?

    No, they charge you a disposal fee then re-sell them after you leave /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Well, les schwab will take good ones in on trade (but dont give you much) if you buy a new set... But they wont pay for used tires if you dont buy new ones.

    cant sell tires that are junk, plus tire shops dont buy used tires lol they only sell them

    besides all the tires i have that i need ot get rid of have been literally cut off the rims and have no beads they are still on the rims

    indiana sounds odd

    IL charges you $1 a tire to dispose of them, they shred them, we have a tire shredder place just outside of town thats not been runnign for very long now

    haha
