Potato Towers - Anyone need tires?

I am growing potatoes in towers made of old tires this year. I had rescued a few from the wild (dumped behind Crown Hill Park), but needed more so I put an ad on craigslist. Apparantly people are dying to give away old tires, I had 5 responses to the ad. My sister went and picked 8 tires up from a auto shop for free. If anyone else is seeking old tires I'd be happy to pass the information along.

I'll take some pictures when I get home and post them. I plan to paint the tires this weekend so that they will be less of an eyesore in the yard. Also here is a great article about all the ways you can use old tires in the yard.
