Opportunity cost.


justacarguy.blogspot.com: high school guys making farming stuff from used up tires... this is cool

Just burn the sidewalls. Unless you need mechanically stabilized gravel

Frankly, I'd just cut them in half. Half the cuts and they'd go twice as far.

I don't quite have that many tires.
But I'm am reusing some tractor tires that went on 24 inch rims as raised planters.
Fillem up with a mix of local dirt, local wood chips, store bought top soil and potting soil.

SawZall? How much harder is it to cut the belted tread vs the sidewall?

The saws all won't cut the bead ring. It cuts the side wall and steel belt just fine.
