What Kind Of Tire?

Postby Ntchwaidumela » Mon May 14, 2007 1:01 am

Hiya All-

Some of you folks have mentioned that actual auto tires make great chew toys for PB's that will anialhate most everything else.

Now, exactly what type of car tires should I look for? I hope there are treadless ones, cause I can't imagine having my Jake chew on something that have a layer of wire under them :frown:

If you can be specific as to what brand and model, that'd be great.

Thanks
E :peace:

We just give our mutts any old tire, and have yet to run into problems.

The small garden tractor and wagon tires don't have steel belts in them. You can find them cheap at Wal-Mart.

For the tires I use for drag work, I went and took junk motorcycle tires from the auto shop where I used to work. They don't generally care if you take them, since all they do is pay to have them hauled away. I would probably give a used tire a good scrubbing to make sure there's no oil or anything on it.

What - why buy them new? You CAN get ATV or spare tires for free at tire places. They are happy to hand them over! They are a bit smaller, I'm not sure whether there is steel in them or not. I am using an old spare tire for a springpole.

i remember some one telling me that spare wheels from a wheel barrel, and boat trailer tires. I dont know from personal exerience but you can always drill a hole through the tire to check; if you find the one your looking for just tie a big peice of rope through the whole.
