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.

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
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.
Wait, wait, wait...A tire can be dirty!?! When did this happen!?!

I would try craigslist if I were you. I bet you could find one.
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.
