Question, does anyone have pictures about the tire alternative?
I’ve heard of this on other topics regarding sled alternatives, and the tire comes up most commonly, but i dont really have an idea how to make one. I figure using wood or similar to flatten the bottom, but when how does one add weight?
Well ive been using a regular car tire, so it only weighs like 20lbs. In this case for me I needed to add about 90-120lbs to do pulls/pushes. Ive heard you can get truck tires (like semis use) and they might be like 100-150lbs on their own.
As for how to make it, its super simple and takes like 10-15 minutes. Drill a hole on each side of the tire on the tread (make sure it is directly opposite from the other hole, this way when you pull one way, you can just flip the rope and pull the other way and dont have to turn the tire) Get two eye bolts and four washers, and attach each one with a nut. You’ll have make some fort of rope with handles and some clips, but if you are at all handy you should be able to figure it out. Originally mine had some colored rope from the hardware store (the stuff that is a little thicker than an pencil) and I made my handles out of nylon strapping. But recently I made handles out of thick PVC pipe to make things a bit harder.
Hope this helps.
