Tires are one of those necessary things for modern day drivers that are incredibly annoying to get rid of once they’re spent up. While most cities have a tire collection event once or twice a year, sometimes you can’t always make the date. Luckily for you, there are plenty of uses for old tires. Here are a handful of fun things to do with old tires from us here at Shults Toyota!
- Planters – As it turns out, tires are a perfect choice for holding your beautiful flowers. After a little cutting and redecorating, a tire can look like a planter bought at the store. Grab your old tires, some paint, and your plants and go to work!
- Sandbox – If you have little kids, a large tire is big enough to become a sandbox. Truck and tractor tires work best due to their size but a regular car tire can be a good backup. Slather on some paint, add some sand, and let your children run wild. Best of all, they won’t care that it isn’t store-bought.
- Tire Swing – If you have a large tree, a rope or chain, and an old tire, you can create a tire swing from scratch. All you have to do is hang the tire from the tree and your kids will have a blast. Consider painting the tire first for an eye-catching toy kids will love!
