Part Worn Tyres





WASTE TYRE TALK-Looking for a fun and effective new piece of exercise equipment to burn fat and sculpt lean muscle?

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

This is a great way to use an old spare tyres.

I have seen ways of using old tyres . Including “how to keep fit” . Helping to “Get Rid of your Spare Tyre“. Especially in recent times. Reminding me of when I was a young tyre fitter in my twenties. Consequently, I worked for a company in Leeds called Kurt Neilds.

Then owned by Goodyear . Fitting Earthmover tyres for a living. The job was fantastic. We lifted and carried the giant tyres on Euclid Earthmovers and other giant plant hire vehicles, such as Cat Earth-movers like the Cat 631s and Terex dump trucks; we were fit as fiddles” and got paid for it as well.

I only weighed 11 stone and could eat what I wanted

Of course, it is no wonder that the use of tyres has been taken up by sportsmen and women to help them exercise. I was impressed at the way rugby union players played. Who can throw these big tyres about ! So now it looks like old tyres are being used for the exercises.

As described in this article from the WASTE TYRE TALK-Savannah Morning News. I am too old to take this up now but if anybody would like some old spare tyres to train with, you can have them for free here in Halifax.

Old waste tyres are now used for all sorts of things.

One of the main uses is to make them into rubber crumbs so that they can be made into safe flooring for, say, children’s play areas, These are replacing wood chippings that were once used and are much safer for the children to play on.

The waste tyre industry also supplies rubber pellets to cement-making companies to power their cement drying kilns. Also, large amounts of rubber pellets go into the making of tarmac for our roads to give a more cushioned ride and a harder-wearing surface when driven on.
