How Do Buy Tractor Tire?
I'd like to buy a tractor tire for the gym (fur ze hitting mit de sledgehammer), but being the metrosexual pansy that I am, have no clue where to get one. Do I just look up "Tractor Tire Sales" in the Yellow Pages, or is there a place you can go and get all kinds of used tires cheap?
Also, how much would you expect to pay for a knackered old tire?
(Apologies if this is in the wrong forum)

Scrap yards, tractor rental centers, tire recycling centers, craigslist, ebay....

If you live near any large farms you could ask them, I'm sure they would be delighted to sell you a used tire. The easiest way is to look in the yellow book for a tractor dealership and tell them something plausable like that you are looking for a used tire to use as a flowerbed and want one which will last a number of years outdoors.
i.e. the tread is worn but it is still in one piece with no tears.

tractor repair, farm supply/scrap/re-use joints, any nearby excavation/engineering contractor, mobile repair trucks, dockyards and marinas, Military Surplus, Target, Wal-Mart, Mac, Sephora, BCBG, Game Stop, 7-11, Condom Depot...etcMany things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

Try your local tyre places and see if they cater to large vehicles. Any place that does should be more than willing to give you one (since disposal of something that heavy is a pain in the ass and costly) so don't offer money straight away (say "I was wondering if I could take one off your hands, save you guys paying for disposal" or something) but if they want it, make an offer.
This is the standard method as far as I've read. Ross and his forumites says pretty much the same.Lord Krishna said: I am terrible time the destroyer of all beings in all worlds, engaged to destroy all beings in this world; Of those heroic soldiers presently situated in the opposing army, even without you none will be spared.

I was passing by a place with thousands of tires in it. I asked how much it was and they guys said $1. Go figure. So I got one washed it off and now use it.
