Our trip to Louisiana and back was long and interesting.
I’ll bet I saw hundreds of Lbs of Tire Rubber off the big trucks laying alongside the road and occasionally bouncing between cars out in the lanes. One got my wife’s front driving lights.

I got to thinking, all that rubber might make little Rubber tires for Drawer rails.
Or some other ‘something’ in a handy guy’s barn.

Have any of you tried that?

I haven’t done that but I do know when the recap peels of the back tandums in a cube van it makes a noise that cannot be ignored!

LOL, I’ll bet it’s like being inside a big Base Drum.

I’m too lazy to start another project in this heat.

Somebody with a bunch of old tires got rich talking the brilliant minds of Louisiana to pay to grind them up and mix it in with the gravel on the side of the roads.

Problem is….. it floats to the top every time it rains. Doh!

I wonder how many claims they had to pay from damage like yours?

I know! They should add those Styrofoam peanuts to the gravel! That way they won’t damage the cars!

So easy.

The Military in Albuquerque used Ground up tires in the Playgrounds for “Dirt” that wouldn’t get the kids all muddy.
Worked great and when they fell off the rings it didn’t break any arms.

Have your say...
