When you use an old tire (unless you already have one lying around) you
have another problem to contend with.  Here in Wshington, there is a fee
that is charged by tire shops on each tire that is sold.  It is called a
disposal fee.  You pay it whether they get your old tires or not.  So
what do you do with the rest of the old tire?  Probably, you pay
somebody to dispose of it.  Ot you could throw it on the roof ok your
Trailer house as I have seen numerous times as I have traveled in rural
areas.  What's up with that?
