​ ​ ​ ​ Getting new tires is a great feeling. First of all, it grants some peace of mind since you won't have to do it again for a while, and second of all, it just feels good. You might feel more confident in your car's performance or just think it looks nice. Either way, now you have a bunch of old tires that you don't know how to get rid of. What can you do with old tires?
​ 

​ ​ ​ ​ Possibly the most obvious choice is to recycle. Recycling has a lot of benefits, as some places will even give you money for your old tires – or, if you're one of those rare pure-hearted individuals, you could donate your old rubber for free. Charities make use of donated tires by helping low-income families get around, when otherwise they may not be able to afford new tires for their car.
​ 

​ ​ ​ ​ In the era of online resources like Pinterest and craft bloggers, though, using old tires to make new things is become more prominent. Everyone remembers the good ol' days of stringing up a tire swing in the tree in your backyard, but more and more people are recycling tires as everything from flower pots to dog beds to sandboxes.
​ 

​ ​ ​ ​ In the end, how you use your old tires depends on your needs. If you just want to clear some space or maybe spot a quick buck, get rid of them. But if you want to express your creative side in a way that might be a little off-beat, using old tires as a DIY project might be more your style.
