    This is an interesting idea. I have a farm and tractor tires all over. What do you do with the tire? Hit it with sledgehammer? Do you stand it up or just hit it on the ground? What is the benefit of this exercise wise?

    I am an advocate of flipping them over repeatedly.

    You could get a tractor tire for free. Perhaps this is just something you can do in rural areas, but I put an ad on craigslist saying "Wanted: Old used tires." In the ad I said I wanted old used tires for free. I received 18 responses, all offering me free tires (mostly it was auto shops getting rid of used car tires, but I did get 1 or 2 ads from farmers wanted to get rid of tractor tires.)

    Also, how much would you expect to pay for a knackered old tire?

    (Apologies if this is in the wrong forum)
    Swap meet
    Farm sales
    Find a ranch and ask the owner.
    (My parents have retired on an old ranch in Idaho. I have found 3 old tractor tires on their property. Also found a bunch of center blocks and railroad ties. Had a unique work out none the less :D Also milking goats and cows give you an insae grip)

    If you cannot find a tractor tire, at least try to get a large SUV tire (think Hummer). It will be too light to flip, but big enough to go wamm! with ze zledgehamm0r thingie.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    Fucked tires are worth less than nothing, since they cost money to dispose of. You should be able to get one for free.

    Be warned that tires are fucking filthy, and will remain so no matter what you do, so don't go flipping them around in your bestest fight shorts and rash guard.

    I know it might seem obvious to anyone who has even an ounce of testosterone in their body, but I have seriously seen people who are actually surprised by that fact. Usually on the way to a wedding...

    I got mine off of Craigslist - guy from a farm has them all over and it costs them too much to recycle them, so they use them around the farm for various things and give them away.

    I got a +300 lber for $0. Good stuff. Flip it, jump up on it and hit it with a sledge.
