Approximately, one tire is discarded per person per year. Instead of throwing them out which can mess the yard up, how about turning them into something useful? Here are 7 brilliant ways to repurpose the old tyres.

After a long time using, the old car tyres will normally end up sitting around the garage or yard or even be thrown out. That could be explained by the fact that the old tires are considered as the waste. It is one of the most re-used waste materials, as the rubber is very resilient and can be reused in other products. However, when it comes to terms of crafts and DIY projects, there is always something that you can do with them, regardless of the number of tyres you stored. Rather than discarding them or having them end up in the landfill, recycling them not only helps the environment but also gives your house such great interior and exterior products like tables, chairs, planters, tyre swing, ottomans, etc. You can turn those old useless tires into everything from your creativity.
