I wish to find Large Tires for CF in LA

Does anybody know a place to find large tires for lifting, hitting with sledges etc in the LA area.
Called a bunch of tire shops but still empty handed.

Thanks

Tire stores are probably not the way to go. You probably need to find a large equipment place - someplace that has backhoes, dumptrucks, earth movers, graders, etc. Someone should have large worn out tires they're looking to have hauled away.

I'm looking to get rid of a couple. If you don't find any before the CF Games, I might be able to arrange bringing them over there if you want to pick them up from me.

Lincoln, Thanks. That is a good idea!


Tim,
what size are they or/& how much do they weight?
If it's not much trouble to bring them to the games that maybe a GREAT help (I'll be there all three days, working as a medic).
Also my gym is in central LA (east hollywood area), so it's very convienient as well.
Drop me a email pete@crossfitcityofangels.com
Thanks

Peter, try to look for rubber recycling centers. They have piles of tires, and the big ones cost alot of $ for them to recycle so they will happily give them away.
