    Hey I was wondering if you had some ideas or places you guys actually got big tires from(tractor or big truck tires for training). The key is getting them for free. You know to do tire lifts and drags, and sledge hammer hits. I tired to do search for it with no help.

    Check out any shops that installs truck tires and grab one they replaced. Costs them $ to get rid of the take-offs.

    any place that installs big tires, also try big construction companies that has machinary that uses the big tires. They have to pay to dispose of them as well.

    Don't junk yards give them away for free? They could possibly have some big tires that had a hole in them or if it was faulty.

    We have gotten 450-900+ lbs tires for free from tractor tire stores. If you can pick it up, they are more then happy to let you have them.

    There are junkyards filled with nothing but hundreds of thousands of tires. There should be at least one of them that is the size youre looking for.

    They weigh a-lot of different weights. I train with a 300 and a 350 lb tire.

    Dump is a good idea..also if there is a landfill by you i guarantee they have a few.

    Get a truck and a ramp or wood. Heck if your lucky enough and get it at a construction site they may even drop it in your drop with a backhoe
