Fish fries. We stitch the centers together with wire and cut an eight inch long rectangle out of the tread. Throw them in the river and come back in the spring and summer and lift them out of the water and drain them on the bank and throw the catfish in the cooler and the tires back in the water. Beats noodling by a longshot!

That manure spreader Simangus5 described with the tires bolted together is the same one we've been using for years untold. If I had a pic I'd post it. Works great.

If you have a pond & raise fish - they are great habitat. Just make sure you cut (or use a shotgun - much more fun) holes in them. They will NOT contaminate the pond & fish like it for "structure" in the pond. Less likely to get your fishing line "snagged" on compared to a brush pile. We set one down flat & stacked another one against the side. Of course, we did this when the pond was first built & empty.
We had about a dozen tractor tires set in place & THAN discovered we needed holes in them (who woulda thunk??) - anyway it was NOT handy to run an elec cord to :shock: to drill the holes - portable wouldn't hold up - SHOTGUN - worked great!!!
Liked the manure spreader!!!
