We are starting our collection of tires. We had to wait because of needing to get approval from the DNR to use more than 99 tires for a project. We were not aware that we needed this approval when we had bought our land. We filled out the needed application form and sent in the needed information and because of the prayers that were sent we got the approval. So now we can collect tires and start our building process. These tires all came from Tony's Tires and are all the same size. We are hopefully going to get all the tires needed from them to complete the outside row. The inside row we are going to use smaller tires.
Because we are trying to get as many tires to be the same size we will only be accepting the following sizes.
If you have tires that are these sizes we will be happy to take them off of your hands. Please do call us to make sure that we are home to accept your tires. We do have a certain location for the tires. You can reach us at 715-459-7436. This is my Wisconsin cell phone number.
We have gotten tires from many people already. We would like to say thank you to everyone that has given us tires. Without your help we would not be able to build our home.
