tires Other Uses for Tires February 19, 2014 Bob Hamburg Leave a comment The 2” weave allows for plenty of plant growth which also helps in stabilization. The rubber-imbedded, high-quality steel hoops which secure tires to wheel rims can be banded together to produce large-diameter culvert pieces which will last for many decades when set in place and covered Two weaves of drive mats were developed – 2″ strips and whole treads. Two-inch-strip allow for much biological assistance in stabilization of the area. Whole tread mats offer full coverage where appropriate. Used racing tires provide a useful covering for radial-tread-filled curb stops. Used-tire curb stops work very well in both rural driveways… and commercial situations. Sidewalls provide the primary resource for fabrication of door, walk-way, and anti-fatigue mats. They can be useful directly on the ground… on ramps… on steps, and many other places. Sidewall mats can be custom made for many situations. I grew up with this front door mat and it was fully 50 years old before beginning to deteriorate. Whole rubber tires can provide the main material for an excellent and exciting swing Teddy bear’s also enjoy the rubber tire swing.
