    Yes, I was driving home from the gym today and saw a huge tire on the road. I pulled over and it was a giant off road tire for a caterpillar with the rim still on it. It's about 4 feet tall, two feet wide, and weighs about 75 pounds. It didn't fit in my car so I have to find a way to get it home tomorrow. I flipped it a few times. It's going to serve as an amazing workout device.

    If it's only 75 pounds you aren't going to get much out of it from flips.

    At 29 years old and 5'5" 145lbs, the 75 lb tire will suffice.

    Why not get a piece of styrofoam? 75 lbs really won't do much

    How the hell does a 4'x2' tire weigh only 75 pounds?

    That's what I was going to say. Especially considering he said there is a rim on it too.

    exactly what i was thinking. i think TS is underestimating the weight, a pick up truck tire with a steel rim would weigh close to 75 lbs

    You could be a man about it and just flip or carry it to your house. Or you could be an asian about it and stand on top of it and roll it home Ultimate Banzuke-style!

    I heard you can get used tires for free at tractor supply places. Big ones.
