Chalk and tires question

Hello! I'm sure this has been posted before so I apologize for the duplicates.
I have 2 questions... any advise will be greatly appreciated! I just opened a box in Lake St Louie, MO and I'm trying to get some ideas/suggestions on the below:

- Any place where I can buy chalk in bulk online? (Hoping to save $ this way)

- Where's the bets place to buy diff size tires for the flipping tire work outs?

Thanks for your input!

Patricio,

Have you considered reaching out to the local Fire Departments or School system? I wonder if they might just give old tires to you provided you haul them off??

Re: Chalk and tires question

We have a TDS Tires here and they give me tires all the time. I just called and asked for one and they said come on down. I was not the first person to request a tire for flipping. I can usually walk around the yard and flip a few. Then they load me up, it costs them money to dispose of them, so your doing them a favor. I do normally ask what they would charge me to dispose of it if I need to upgrade to a larger tire later.

Re: Chalk and tires question

as far as Fire Depts or schools go, I think they all contract that work out or have City shops do the work. Good luck asking the Government to give you something.

Re: Chalk and tires question

I work for fd, and we contract it out to a company. The place we use is Strouhal Tire. Like above poster said, if you call the place they will give them away for free.
